    So you and Big Government are still hung up on Clinton? What's the matter? Are you trying to make Bush look good, or can you just not stand it that a Democratic president balanced the budget?

    Eisenhower was the last to balance a budget.

    The post had nothing to do with Bush. It had to do with political LIES...in particular, one that has been around ever since Slick Willie Clinton and his cronies pulled the wool over your eyes.

    Clinton balanced the budget. He left Bush with a record surplus. Too bad Bush spent it all. Sorry, you were saying something about lies?

    Boehner Won't Rule Out 'Balanced Budget Amendment' That Permits Unlimited Federal Spending
    October 27, 2011 – House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) indicated at a press briefing Thursday that the House Republican leadership is not ruling out the possibility that it will support a balanced budget amendment that does not cap federal spending as a percentage of Gross Domestic Product or require a supermajority in Congress to increase taxes.

    There was no surplus. It never existed. It was a ten year projection calculated on bad information and based on the premise that the economy would continue to grow regardless of reality.

    Naturally when the Clinton recession began, it made an actual surplus impossible to obtain.
