    1) Spend it on more stuff?
    2) Lower taxes?
    3) Put it toward the debt?

    A real surplus, I mean, not a Bill Clinton smoke-and-mirrors surplus.
    Once again, my answer is not included. This may be why I am an Independent and not one of the two main parties. My answer: Save it for the next economic crisis (it will grow with interest).

    Why would you save it when you are paying 400bn a year in interest? How long would it take to save 17 trillion?

    There's probably 20+ potential answers. I just limited to what I thought would be the top few.

    To your answer, where could we earn the kind of interest that would offset the interest we're paying on the debt?
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
