If I'm wrong, I'd like to see what Clinton did to create the surplus situation.
P.S. - republicans have actually raided S.S. trust fund before & after Clinton. It's a shame.
Regardless, the deficit is out of control & is on course to destroy this country in the next 50 - 75 years if not corrected.
As far as Clinton personally. He is brilliant, communicates masterfully & did some good things for this country. I hope our future presidents have some of these attributes.
