Now flip it and see who controlled the Congress during those times, and you will find that the opposite it true.
Who took over the Congress in 1994?
And Gee what happened in 2001 that made the Government spend so much money?
And who is it that is supposed to control spending ? Hint - not the President.

Thanks for the reminder jack about how s@#$y the democratic party is at running a country!
whoops, a little more research instead of a stupid graph could have saved someone from a little embarassment. live and learn.
Clinton did nearly balance the budget, but our military suffered from it. Didn't he half the US Military in his 8 years (I can't remember if he cut in in half or just cut out 1/3 of it)? I am sure it seemed like a good idea at the time, but these days...
Nothing against Clinton, though. Between Bill Clinton and Bob Dole, I will pick Clinton any day of the week.
