    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?
