Clinton ran deficits throught all 8 years of his term, and one can go to the US Treasury Department and looking through the history of the total outstanding debt through Clintons term.
Every year Clinton was in office, the total national debt continued to climb.
How Clinton managed to claim a surplus was that while the general operating budgets ran deficits but Clinton borrowed from numerous off budget funds to make the on budget fund a surplus.
For example, in 2000, Clinton claimed a $230B surplus, but Clinton borrowed
$152.3B from Social Security
$30.9B from Civil Service Retirement Fund
$18.5B from Federal Supplementary Medical insurance Trust Fund
$15.0B from Federal Hospital Insurance Trust Fund
$9.0B from the Federal Unemployment Trust Fund
$8.2B from Military Retirement Fund
$3.8B from Transportation Trust Funds
$1.8B from Employee Life Insurance & Retirement fund
$7.0B from others
Total borrowed from off budget funds $246.5B, meaning that his $230B surplus is actually a $16.5B deficit.
($246.5B borrowed - $230B claimed surplus = $16.5B actual deficit).
If there is ever a true surplus, then the national debt will go down.
the national debt did not go down one year during the Clinton administration.
According to Factcheck.org and other similar sites, President Clinton left office with a huge budget surplus: the amount was $1.9 billion in fiscal 1999, and then, $86.4 billion in fiscal 2000. In fact, the last three years of his presidency, the government regularly took in more money than it spent.
Surplus describes extra items in an inventory. It means that there is too much of any one thing. It also tends to describe excess, although not in a bad way; more like extra items available for give away.Surplus means something left over, something extra. Here are some sentences.We had a surplus supply of corn, so we made corn meal out of the extra.There is a surplus of clothing at the homeless shelter.She had a surplus of tomatoes from her garden this year.Army surplus items are often sold to the public.There was a surplus of sugar in Hawaii.He went to the Army surplus store.There was a surplus amount of turkey left after Thanksgiving.There were too many apples to eat; there was a surplusof apples.During the Clinton years, the United States government had a budget surplus, which meant that some of the debt was paid off.
none would be the answer that comes to mind - he actually ran up the deficit by the largest amount to his point in time. 4 months before Reagan took office the national debt was $711.9 billion, and 8 months after Reagan left office the national debt was $2.1907 trillion according to the Congressional Budget Office.
