    If you had read the link I provided you would not have been quite as confused about a deficit and the federal debt. Woops.


    <Update, Feb. 11: Some readers wrote to us saying we should have made clear the difference between the federal deficit and the federal debt. A deficit occurs when the government takes in less money than it spends in a given year. The debt is the total amount the government owes at any given time. So the debt goes up in any given year by the amount of the deficit, or it decreases by the amount of any surplus. The debt the government owes to the public decreased for a while under Clinton, but the debt was by no means erased.>
    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

    And guess what? When the budget deficits were added to the national debt the national debt INCREASED in the years that you are claiming a surplus. That is why the surplus was a myth because when off budget items and the interest on the national debt are calculated with the budget status the national debt INCREASES. Not really a hard concept to understand.

    You can pick:

    2. Massive conspiracy to "hide" fraud by putting it on a public website for anyone to easily find.

    I pick sanity. You can pick paranoid lunacy if you want.

    Wrong.

    There was very clearly a surplus, a real one. The government took in more money than it paid out that year. Whether you include SS or not. Even when you included interest payments. Simple math.

    No, it did not.

    Debt held by the public went down. Intragovernmental holdings do not increase deficits. They are not real debt.

    dylan rattigan on msnbc's morning meeting, segment 2 at 10:00 eastern, headline---cooking the books with stimulus jobs

    rattigan---420 jobs in CA saved by stimulus, the reality: those jobs were never in jeopardy

    rattigan---30 jobs created by stimulus funds in fayetteville, wisc, the reality: 6 jobs

    rattigan---school district in northern chicago claims 650 jobs saved by stimulus, reality: the district employs only 600 people

    extreme liberal rattigan is now the 100th voice of independence to chime in on this topic

    everyone knows

    "Clerical errors" are the most common way of laundering and hiding money, did you know that?

    Clerical errors on a public website, in plain sight where the fact checkers(who never check liberal facts we are told, except when they do), with no effort to hide them, or disguise them, or even make them less obvious?
