ABSTRACT
The article argues against the claim made by U.S. President Bill Clinton that his administration is mainly responsible for reducing the budget deficit as of 1996. It reviews the record of the president from 1993 to 1996 on economic policy. It criticizes the failure of the president to endorse bipartisan deficit-reduction initiatives. It also contends that Clinton attempted to increase the budget deficit through his fiscal-stimulus package called ClintonCare and his crime bill. He also rejected every Republican budget-balancing plan.
