Bill Clinton was the reason for the balanced budget and projected surplus.

As soon Clinton was gone, and the GOP gained the Executive branch they instantly enacted their budget busting agenda of massive tax cuts for the ultra wealthy, and massive spending bills for the cronnies.

The GOP had a chance to solidify the future finances of America and they fucked it up big time. They made numerous policy mistakes that decimated the finances of America and left the country in massive recession 7 years later.

Looking back 20 years later you can really see how bad the GOP was in 2000-2008, and how they put America on the path for major fiscal problems due to their terrible economic policies, and wild spending bills that did little benefit to America.

More troubling was that Trump did the exact same thing as Bush and spent even more wildly.

Biden is going to spend a lot like Bush and Trump, but he is doing it in a much more effective way, leading to much better growth. Biden will do what Bush and Trump failed to do, achieve great GDP growth.

Excellent analysis. Republican are fiscally irresponsible. They want to cut $15B from the mouths of the poor and give $1.5T in tax breaks to rich people to offset it with the lie that the economy will magically pay it back. Then you get giant deficits. Republicans are fiscally irresponsible.

All you do is post one or two liners saying you’re wrong and then name calling. The day you put out an intelligent argument will be the first. I look forward to that day.

You didn't read this and dot.com was a bubble that blew up.

Given Hoyer’s wording -- that when Bush came into office he "inherited" a $5.6 trillion surplus, we think a viewer would assume that it’s both a tangible figure, and that it refers to a specific point in time. In reality, it’s neither. It’s a projection of future surpluses, and it’s a figure that covers a 10-year period. In fact, the final two years of those surpluses wouldn’t even fall within Bush’s two terms in office.

The bubble burst and 9/11 came along that badly hurt the economy.

Seems there is always an excuse on the Republican side: covid, dot com, housing. You know what the Democratic excuse will always be? Republicans fucked up the economy and we have to fix again. Thanks Joe/Obama/Bill for your leadership.

True to form. A one liner name calling with no substance. Easy to predict.

Maybe you kids weren't alive in 2000, but the GOP passed massive spending bill after massive spending bill, each one stupider than the next.

The GOP handed trillions to the ultra wealthy and they squandered the projected surplus.

The GOP failed America.
