    The 90's were shitty for me, although it was much easier to find work. I was just too young and lazy.

    Clinton had nothing of the kind. All surpluses were PROJECTED out ten years, based on how the stock market was performing at the time. It was smoke and mirrors, and a lot of bullshit.

    ahhh... good 'ole revisionist republican/conservative denial. from a faceless profile no less... weak.

    http://www.factcheck.org/askfactcheck/during_the_clinton_administration_was_the_federal.html

    and as one previous poster noted and the www.factcheck.org link states:

    "An equally if not more powerful influence was the booming economy and huge gains in the stock markets, the so-called dot-com bubble, which brought in hundreds of millions in unanticipated tax revenue from taxes on capital gains and rising salaries."

    .... still happened on Bill's watch.
