YOU can balance the budget
So today, the New York Times has an article/online piece allowing you to balance the budget. It is great.
You should try it, and then report back a) how long it took you, and b) your ratio of spending cuts to tax increases.
It took me 5 minutes to balance the budget, why can’t Congress/Obama do it? I got a surplus.
73% spending cuts, 27% tax increases on the richest 2% (sorry, but life is unfair).
