Some quality stuff here folks! Make sure to read the captions.
Alternative captions welcome too!


Rep. J.C. Watts, R-Okla., at microphone, along with fellow Republican House members, meets reporters on Capitol Hill Thursday Oct. 28, 1999 after the House pushed the last and biggest spending bill of the year. Front row, from left are, Rep. Tillie Fowler, R-Fla., House Speaker Dennis Hastert of Ill., House Majority Whip Tom DeLay of Texas, Watts, and Rep. Bill Young, R-Fla. (AP Photo/Kamenko Pajic)


Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert, R-Ill., right, holds a poster which reads "Republicans Have Ended the Raid on Social Security" during a press conference outlining the leaders' plans for dealing with the U.S. budget surplus on Capitol Hill in Washington Tuesday, Oct. 12, 1999. From left are House Majority Whip Tom DeLay, R-Texas, and House Majority Leader Dick Armey, R-Texas. (AP Photo/Khue Bui)


Senate Majority Leader Sen. Trent Lott, R-Miss., plays with a safe Wednesday March 10,1999 in Washington. The GOP announced a plan to lock away all of the Social Security Trust Fund surplus for seniors. In background are Sen. John Ashcroft, R-Mo., and House Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-Ill. The safe was a prop used for a photo opportunity by the group. (AP Photo/Joe Marquette)


Democratic presidential candidate Vice President Al Gore speaks at the Brookings Institution in Washington, Thursday, Sept. 28, 2000. Gore stated in his speech that he wants to pay down the national debt in 12 years to eliminate interest payments that form the government's third largest program behind Social Security and defense. Gore said "proserity itself will be on the ballot" on election day. (AP Photo/ J. Scott Applewhite)

Al was dead frickin serious!


Rep. Gil Gutknecht R-Minn. talks on the GOP Budget Proposal during a news conference on Capitol Hill, Wednesday March 15, 2000, after an opening comment by Rep. J.C. Watts, R-Ok., left. The Republican proposal divides the surplus in essentially three ways: one-third to secure Social Security and Medicare, one-third to pay down debt and one-third back to taxpayers. (AP Photo/Dennis Cook)


Federal Reserve Board Chairman Alan Greenspan ponders a question while testifying on Capitol Hill Wednesday March 3, 1999 before a House Commerce subcommittee hearing on Social Security. Greenspan expressed concerns about a Clinton administration proposal to invest a significant portion of the Social Security Trust Fund in equities. (AP Photo/Khue Bui)


Sweet pie dude! lol

Ben Cohen, co-founder of Ben and Jerry's Homemade Inc., takes a piece of his "Budget Pie" during a Capitol Hill news conference where he brought the 11-foot pie to discuss spending priorities. On Monday, the President sent Congress a $1.77 trillion spending plan, beginning a new century with record budget surpluses that he would use to shore up Social Security and showers billions in new spending on initiatives from child care to the Pentagon.
