People have short-term memories.If a DEM or REP payed off the national debt and a member of the same party is elected and grows the debt most people will blame it on the party even though it was one person and say "we shouldn't elect the party again"

I don't think any one person can decide the budget. That's kinda how our country was designed. No one person can have that much power.

Congress passes the budget in this country!

So the surpluses in the mid 90s is thanks to congress led by Newt Gingrich and Clinton giving in to his demands (after a month long gov't shutdown that is) and the deficit in the 2000s and now is due to the respective presidents and the congresses

So essentially no one should put all the blame or all the thanks on the president it should be shared with the congress.
