This fiscal year also marks the first budget surplus in a generation.
In his State of the Union address, President Clinton asked a basic
question -- what should we do with this projected surplus?-- and gave
an historic four-word answer: Save Social Security First. With our
fiscal house in order, marked by the first budget surplus in a generation,
President Clinton is determined to seize this unique opportunity to
strengthen this most important program for generations to come. Protecting
the surplus is a key step towards enacting Social Security reform.
President Clinton defeated repeated efforts to squander the surplus
and, at the end of this Congress, it remains intact.
