Can You Balance the Budget?

Updated

There’s just 8 days to go until the Super Committee deadline.  Some people think the nation’s budget woes aren’t as complicated as Washington makes them, though.

The Wilson Center has teamed up to develop a “game” that allows people to try their hand at the complexities being faced by the Super Committee, i.e. cutting over a trillion dollars (I’d recommend some scrap paper).

The program, complete with policy proposals from the Gang of 6 and the Bowles-Simpson deficit reduction committee, can be accessed at www.budgethero.org.
