    The question remains, why do you care how much tax the rich pay?

Why anyone would support higher taxes on anyone just shows how brainwashed some people are. Liberal politicians love having those people to manipulate.

    Look, if you can't refute the numbers or the information posted, just say so. It is a sign of maturity to admit when wrong. Why not be the first liberal in this forum that I have seen to do so?

A reduction in debt one month doesn't a year make. the official numbers are what I posted and what the interest expense is based upon.

    As has been posted there was no pay down of the debt because there was no yearly budget surplus. Even Bush had months when there was a surplus but that is the way expenses were paid.

    Nah, you call and tell them that treasury direct (one of your links ) that they are posting wrong data. While you at it tell them that that the President of the United States is wrong as well, for telling CNN “that the federal budget surplus for fiscal year 2000 amounted to at least $230 billion, making it the largest in U.S. history and topping last year's record surplus of $122.7 billion.”

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Clinton announced Wednesday that the federal budget surplus for fiscal year 2000 amounted to at least $230 billion, making it the largest in U.S. history and topping last year's record surplus of $122.7 billion.

    It isn't like Clinton hasn't lied before. By the way do you believe it is appropriate to use the SS surplus to even show a lower deficit when the reality is that money should go back to pay the IOU's. Tell me why even your site doesn't show that kind of a surplus?

    You seem to believe what you want to believe. I posted the Treasury numbers and even your numbers don't show that kind of surplus yet you wanto to continue to believe Clinton?

    I believe that to set our fiscal books in order, Americans must pay more. If Congress wants to lower spending, great. Until then, pay up!

    Why do you care, that I care? I makes no difference what I think. According to you I am just some dumb-assed-stupid-liberal want to soak the rich for evey penny they have.

    Why is Americans have to pay more instead of American politicians spending less?

    Actually why don't you answer the question, your numbers don't show that kind of a surplus and the actual official Treasury numbers show a deficit yet you buy and post what Clinton says?
