Just one problem here. There was no balanced budget, much less surplus during Gingrich's days as Speaker and Clinton's time as prexy. It's both myth and an accounting slight-of-hand ala Enron. "Balancing" the budget was accomplished by slipping IOUs in the Social Security Trust Fund, taking the moneys into the General Fund, accounting for the credit while ignoring the debit. Ala Enron.
