You are more than misinformed.
The Clinton surplus was on paper because of the dot com bubble. Once all that money disappeared, the capital gains tax it generated went away too.
It had nothing to do with Clinton other than timing.
But why dont you speak the truth and admit that the plans set forth for 9/11 all happened under Clinton's watch and that attack had a huge financial impact that we had a hard time recovering from?
