Politics and National Debt
So this country is in huge debt, that sucks and we should cut stuff to get out. Yup. But has anyone actually thought to go back to the Clinton era and look at the finances from that time period, compare them to Bush's and now and think seriously about how to fix this by looking at history like that? We had no deficit when Clinton was in office, the whole 8 years. Why? There's alot of bickering about this cost and that and social security, what is so different now from the 90's? We haven't had a huge baby boom, a little bit more population but not enough to influence like this. So really? Why hasn't anyone looked?
