That is what it is called when the President and Congress cannot agree on a budget. Non necessary personnel are sent home and it is called a govt. shutdownMorality Games;1058613499]I'm sorry, but I don't speak hyperbole. "Shut down the government?"
I don't have to make any argument at all, check out the economic growth in 1993 and 1994 before the GOP took over Congress. You can get that information from bea.gov.Anyway, while duty obliges me to take assertions that Clinton's economic policy was not the catalyst for the mid-late 90s economic boom, you'd have to make a stronger argument for it; what you have now are vague generalizations.
I don't say he had a deficit, the U.S. Treasury Dept. which is the checkbook of the Govt. says he didn't have a surplus without using SS. That never was the intent of SS.I'm also not going to argue whether or not Clinton had a surplus, so you can stop right there; I believe he did, but if you want to say he didn't, I don't care. I said he was fiscally responsible in that the economic bills he passed did not exceed fundamental limits on available capital.
Did you read what factcheck says? Try again, the economic plan he passed retroactive to January 1, 1993 led to the election of the Republican Congress who reversed many of those tax increases. That led to the boom the later part of the decade, a boom however that was built on the dot.com industry and thus fake assets.Let's see what fact check has to say:

Why do you buy what you are told and never research to verify the rhetoric?
