- if you remember he (Clinton) demanded to balance the budget in a 10 year plan - Republican Congress refused - right?

Are you suggesting that either Trump or the republican congress will attempt to balance the budget?  They have a large tax cut on the table right now (in Trumpcare), and another large one coming in the budget resolutions.  Trump promised not to touch social security or medicare.  Trump is increasing military spending by 10%.  Where in all of this do you get the idea that republicans will make any serious attempt to balance the budget?

There has not been a true surplus since probably the 50's.  The debt has increased every year since then, the Clinton "surplus" was part of a bullshit accounting trick which did nothing more than account for one side of the budget while ignoring the other.

There has not been a real balanced budget in decades.

The debt has gone up all this time, there hasn't been a balanced budget in years under any Rep or Dem administration.  It's all smoke and mirrors.

- dems claim Trump's budget has real cuts - won't tax cuts increase growth and therefore increased tax revenue?

What kind of idiot believes in trickle down.

It has never worked. It is bullshit.
As HW Bush said it is voodoo economics
