    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Once again when interest on the national debt is calculated into the equation the budget deficit actually increased in the last year of the Clinton Administration.

    Ya it didn't exist because when the interest on the national debt is calculated in the national deficit actually increased in that year.

    As soon as you find a bit of evidence that says what you want it to say, you stop looking eh?

    Here check this out and before you start squawking about the third paragraph that contains this little jewel< Social Security taxes now bring in more than the cost of current benefits, and the "Social Security surplus" makes the total deficit or surplus figures look better than they would if Social Security wasn't counted.> better check on whose watch started raiding the social security fund.


    FactCheck.org: During the Clinton administration was the federal budget balanced? Was the federal deficit erased?

    Social security? Whose talking about social security? I'm talking about the interest on the national debt. The national debt increased every single year Clinton was in office. The national debt increased every single year Clinton was in office.

    Once again see if you can believe the CBO.

    lol those figures don't take the interest paid on the national debt or off budget items into account.

    FY1999: $5.656270 trillion

    FY2000: $5.674178 trillion

    FY2001: $5.807463 trillion

    Woops.
