The welfare reform President Bill Clinton twice vetoed then signed under voter duress created most of his budget surplus.

More than 3 million people left welfare by getting jobs.

Increased revenues and reduced spending produced his “surplus” without changing the tax code.

Conservatives are working on the most powerful policy change ever — universal school choice for every child in America, using cost-sharing of state and federal education budgets for vouchers.

Without changing the tax code, it would be a big improvement in American education, saving local and state taxpayers $200 to $300 billion a year.
