Democrats love to lie about Bill Clinton’s ‘surplus’, almost as much as Obama loves stating he ‘inherited’ a bad economy that he volunteered his stewardship for. Both are huge distortions and do not represent the facts.
In September of 2000, as Clinton was leaving office, the NASDAQ began to crash. By the time George Bush was sworn in, the NASDAQ had cratered 46%. Any fabled surplus allegedly created by Clinton in the economy was long gone.
