The last balanced budget was when Republicans ran Congress and controlled the purse strings.
After the Democrats took over the Congress in 2007 the deficit exploded.
What percent did it explode?
What percent is national debt up?

Obama had more debt than all of the previous President's combined, so yeah, at least 100%.

The last balanced budget was when Republicans ran Congress and controlled the purse strings.

The last times we had surpluses were FY1998 ($69.3 B), FY1999 ($125.6B), FY2000 ($236.2B), and FY2001 ($128.2B).

That was after the Gingrich Congress dragged BJ Clinton kicking and screaming to accept $1 Trillion in spending cuts over 5 years AND after the Gingrich Congress forced BJ to accept massive cuts in capital gains tax rates, resulting in dramatic increases in tax revenues.

I'm sure Trump will only support a balanced budget - he is pushing our conservative views of government!
