“And, as Bill Clinton reminds at every opportunity, the U.S. government was in surplus for four years at the end of his presidency.”

If there was a surplus, then why did we have to borrow money throughout those four years?

I guess if private government debt doesn't count when calculating the total debt, then one has to admit that there are no trust funds.
