Why does the U.S Treasury show a DEFICIT each year that Clinton was in office???? Are they "pea brains"??? Why isnt there an asterisk next to those "surplus" years?? Because the SURPLUS is a FARCE!!!!!
The social security and medicare surplus was supposed to be used later on. It was NOT supposed to be used for tax cuts. A trust fund is not considered part of a CURRENT surplus. So even theough the government took in more than it spent that money was meant for future use. Bush took the money that was meant for the future and used it for tax cuts. If you put savings into a college fund for your kid you still have savings but they're for the future. Bush is like a drunken father who takes his kids college money and drinks and gambles with it.
"Bush took the money that was meant for the future and used it for tax cuts."
This is an outright lie. The tax cuts were to stimulate the economy not to raid SS and Medicare. Whether or not it worked is debatable but what you describe DID NOT occur. The tax cuts were FOR ALL by the way, not just the "rich". The Government never "gave" them a dime, these were cuts not grants or bailouts. The "rich" still pay PLENTY of taxes. How much overall?????
