Because he didn't want to cut spending. It's best to have low spending, low taxes, and no debt. BUT, if politicians won't cut spending, I'd rather have higher taxes to pay for that spending than have a higher debt. Borrowing money is an "easy out" that hides the problem. It's unethical. Pay for what you want. If you don't have the money, you shouldn't get it.
