According to the Dems the budget was nearly balanced under Bill Clinton. I'm not trying to start that argument again, but lets say it was minimal. Clinton left office in 2001. It would be even worse than that now if congress had the idea that killing some Polly Ranter could absolve them of budgetary restraint. Not that they have any sense of budgetary restraint now!
