There are Lies, Damn lies, & Statistics. - Mark Twain, et al
Whilst President Clinton sent his wife out to peddle Universal Health Care (giving away free health care), no regard was given to those being indentured with crippling financial consequences forced to pay supposedly free health care for everybody else. His wife's abject failure to sell this crippling healthcare turned governmental collective memory into an arcane budget surplus (pretending President Clinton spent less than proposed or observed).
Even during the Clinton reign, future spending promises far exceeded tax revenue. Been the case since 1913.
