Response to Sorry Reps, Libby got you on this one
"There is a reason fact check sites exist. This is one of them. It ends debates."
If that were true then we would need just one of them, or every one of them would produce exactly the same answer to every question. Neither one is the case. All of this stuff is subject to interpretation and certainly subject to debate.
To ask it simply, based on US Treasury (the ultimater scorekeeper) data, if Clinton had a budget surplus in any given year, why didn't the total national debt decrease in that year from the previous year? By matter of definition of a budget "surplus", it would have to, but it appears it didn't, based upon the treasury data. Explain? And please, without name calling or reference to a fact checker site.
