Most people understand the concept of to pay off all your bills, you need to bring in enough money to cover the checks you write.

This concept is lost on trickle down Republicans who refuse to learn the lessons of Reagon budget failures and Bush I failures and Bush II failures.

Clinton’s large budget surpluses also owe much to the Social Security tax on payrolls. Social Security taxes now bring in more than the cost of current benefits, and the "Social Security surplus" makes the total deficit or surplus figures look better than they would if Social Security wasn’t counted. But even if we remove Social Security from the equation, there was a surplus of $1.9 billion in fiscal 1999 and $86.4 billion in fiscal 2000. So any way you count it, the federal budget was balanced and the deficit was erased, if only for a while.
Shuffling numbers and paper, you brainless wonder. Social Security is We The People's money - NOT the governments.

Then we had 9/11, of course that didn't cost us a penny, according to the deranged left anyway.

Clinton's repeated tepid responses to attacks on our interests led directly to 9/11, deranged and forgetful libs forget that as well.

Idiotic libs and the likes of the scumbags at the Anti Christian League[ACLU] prevented any kind of profiling, once again leading directly to 9/11. Gotta treat my old mama the same as young, sweaty Arabs with no luggage and 1 way tickets.

As usual, treason from the left causes great harm to us.

The left owns 9/11 and they own the mortgage crisis.

CHART: How The Clinton Surpluses Turned Into More Than $6 Trillion Worth Of Deficits
Lucas Kawa
Jan. 8, 2013
At the Democratic National Convention, Bill Clinton famously opined that 'arithmetic' was the magic trick that enabled him to be the last President to provide a budget surplus.
In 2001, the CBO projected that the total Clinton surplus of about $280 billion would balloon to $5.9 trillion worth of cumulative surpluses through 2011, when in reality the accumulated deficits reached $6 trillion at the end of that time period.
That's pretty bad arithmetic. So what happened?
The U.S. Treasury Department recently tweeted this chart, which breaks down the major drivers that turned a small surplus into a massive deficit....

I'm happily a member of the ACLU, which has nothing to do with religion other than having defended our First Amendment religious rights many times.

ACLU doesn't run airports, the FBI, or the Bush administration, you lying, pathetic clown. Bush and Cheney WANTED 911 to happen so they could justify their terroristic wars in the Middle East.

And that means YOU own them, asswipe. Oh yes you do! LOL

IN THE UNLIKELY EVENT YOU COME IN CONTACT WITH 2ndamright OR ANY OF HIS MANY ALIASES DO NOT BEND OVER IN FRONT OF HIM UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES . A panel of experts has recently determined that this poor INBRED’S complete inability to attract any attention from either sex has driven him to the rather bizarre behavior of impersonating Americans. He is doing this in the hope of attracting either reverend ted hagg.ard or a priest with a tub of vaseline, to which he hasn’t been successful.
He has now resorted to trying to kornhole his own aliases. This creature can most commonly found on the TOPIX gun threads, erect, spinning around like a dog chasing it’s tail, while trying to get at his own butt. It is also highly recommended that in the case of accidental contact you rinse yourself off with bleach and burn the clothes you were wearing
I would strongly suggest that you crawl back under your rock before someone steps on you and squishes you, bug.

Seems to be really, really lost on the Demoncraps. They're spending orders of magnitude more than they're taking in and want to spend even more. The azzholes are going to bankrupt the country and don't even care.
