The budget surpluses could have been used to pay down debt, thereby greatly reducing the amount of money required to run the government. Or it could have been used to privatize a portion of Socical Security, which would have greatly eased the upcomming crunch when the Boomers start to retire. Either way, higher taxes will now be a requirement.

Hey, here's an idea. What about spending less money?
