Clinton Sees An Early Payoff of U.S. Debt

Mr. Clinton, in an announcement from the White House, called on Republican leaders in Congress to “put politics aside and join me” in a budget proposal that would pay off dollars 3.6 trillion in debt by 2013. This, he said, would leave the United States debt-free for the first time since 1835.

“What we’re doing by taking this position,” Mr. Clinton said, “is maximizing the choices the next president and the next Congress will have.”
