Facts (and math) are simply not your friend.

The debt on <u><a href="http://www.treasurydirect.gov/NP/debt/search?startMonth=03&startDay=20&startYear=2000&endMonth=&endDay=&endYear=">May 20, 2000</a></u>: $5,788,541,874,357.52

The debt on <u><a href="http://www.treasurydirect.gov/NP/debt/search?startMonth=06&startDay=15&startYear=2001&endMonth=&endDay=&endYear=">June 15, 2001</a></u>: $5,632,910,105,449.16

That was one week after Bush's first tax cuts were signed into law (<u><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economic_Growth_and_Tax_Relief_Reconciliation_Act_of_2001">June 7, 2001</a></u>), and began to kick in. That was the day the debt started going back up.
