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

    It would be nice if you right wing extremists would get your facts straight and knock off the lies.

    I take it you never been to Hawaii.

    Not everybody is named Jones or Smith in the USA. Doesn't mean they are less American just that they may have a name of foregin descent.

    A good reading is about the 442nd Regimental Combat Team in WWII without a single Jones of Smith in the unit.

    It would be nice to see the left give credit for "Clinton's" balanced budget to the Rebublicans in Congress who forced it on him.

    All you have to do is look at the Clinton budgets, the ones he bothered to submit anyway. None of them proposed a balanced budget.

    If memory serves Clinton railed against the "Contract With America" that proposed a balanced budget.
    The national security of the United States can never be left in the hands of liberals.

    Read and weep.

    While not defending the increase of the federal debt under President Bush, it's curious to see Clinton's record promoted as having generated a surplus. It never happened. There was never a surplus and the facts support that position. In fact, far from a $360 billion reduction in the national debt in FY1998-FY2000, there was an increase of $281 billion.

    Verifying this is as simple as accessing the U.S. Treasury (see note about this link below) website where the national debt is updated daily and a history of the debt since January 1993 can be obtained. Considering the government's fiscal year ends on the last day of September each year, and considering Clinton's budget proposal in 1993 took effect in October 1993 and concluded September 1994 (FY1994), here's the national debt at the end of each year of Clinton Budgets:



    FY1993 09/30/1993 $4.411488 trillion
    FY1994 09/30/1994 $4.692749 trillion $281.26 billion
    FY1995 09/29/1995 $4.973982 trillion $281.23 billion
    FY1996 09/30/1996 $5.224810 trillion $250.83 billion
    FY1997 09/30/1997 $5.413146 trillion $188.34 billion
    FY1998 09/30/1998 $5.526193 trillion $113.05 billion
    FY1999 09/30/1999 $5.656270 trillion $130.08 billion
    FY2000 09/29/2000 $5.674178 trillion $17.91 billion
    FY2001 09/28/2001 $5.807463 trillion $133.29 billion


    As can clearly be seen, in no year did the national debt go down, nor did Clinton leave President Bush with a surplus that Bush subsequently turned into a deficit. Yes, the deficit was almost eliminated in FY2000 (ending in September 2000 with a deficit of "only" $17.9 billion), but it never reached zero--let alone a positive surplus number. And Clinton's last budget proposal for FY2001, which ended in September 2001, generated a $133.29 billion deficit. The growing deficits started in the year of the last Clinton budget, not in the first year of the Bush administration.

    I'm going to have to give Obama props for releasing his official birth video...

    As the night wore on, it didn't look like Trump was all too happy about it...Kinda looked like the first 20 jokes were allright, but after that he was getting upset.

    Yes, he was all upset, and no one to fire.
