Alright, back to the main topic. There was no Clinton "surplus". Just spin.
1 Oct 1999-5,652,679,330,611
29 Sep 1999 5,674,178,209,886
1 Oct 2000-5,674,178,209,886
28 Sep 2001-5,807,463,412,200
Those facts came from: http://www.treasurydirect.gov/np/debt/current
So what to make of them? Simple. The capital gains tax cut and the dot com boom created good business conditions. Then, dot com boom played out and was way past its peak and it showed. Clinton didn't have a clue and was leaving Bush a mess but so what? He got plenty of sex, wasn't convicted of impeachment and his punishment for his felony conviction wasn't going to stop him from making millions. The numbers don't lie and both budgets 1999 and 2000 belong to Clinton. Business conditions were not real good the day Bush took office, in fact a major downward trend was what Bush was faced with along with Clintons $133,285,202,314 deficit his first year.
Lets also not pretend the federal debt started with Bush. Clinton added to it every year (once again use the treasury website for facts instead of whitehouse spin). You and I can both blame Bush for added to the federal debt but no president in American history has added to the debt like Obama has. And with Obama, because of unaffordable Obamacare, our nation is doomed.
real numbers. real facts. real truth. No whitehouse spin. have a good day chump.
