The document you gave me shows the use of off-budget money to make the so called "surplus". Off-budget=social security
That is the law, not an accounting trick employed exclusively by the Clinton Whitehouse.

And as CRGreathouse points out, 1999 and 2000 were surplus years above and beyond the SS surplus.

As long as we do not think about the fact that the federal employees pension fund money was spent to generate this "surplus" then yes there was a small "surplus" in 1999 and 2000

1999 1.9B "surplus" out of 1,383.2B
2000 86.4B "surplus" out of 1,544.9B

How soon we forget.

The Republicans controlled the House, Senate, and White House in 2005.

Nice try though.
Are you suggesting that Barney Frank and Chris Dodd were not in position to affect the lending markets?
