Among the plans up for debate_an 800-billion dollar package that would let taxpayers share the benefits of a predicted budget surplus. But the President says until Congress can shore up Medicare and Social Security_a big tax cut is a bad idea.

The President must pay more than 90-thousand dollars in penalties to Jones and her lawyers. But one of the lawyers representing Jones says he might appeal the amount as being too low.
Federal Judge Susan Webber Wright ordered the president to pay the fine as punishment for giving false answers in his deposition in January 1998. The fine is in addition to the 850 thousand dollar out-of-court settlement with Jones who claimed Clinton sexually harassed her when he was governor of Arkansas. The president paid the fine but did not admit doing anything wrong.
