    I had been wondering why, if these people were really concerned about the deficit, why they didn't take the Clinton budget of 2000 to be a baseline. We were running a surplus back then, and the economy was strong enough to set a post-Vietnam War record low for unemployment.

    If they're supporting Tea Partisans, it would prove (as if any proof was needed) that their concern for the deficit was just window dressing for their intent to bash Social Security and Medicare.
