YOU Plan the American Budget

Whether Democrat, Republican, Constitution, Libertarian, or Green, we all tend to criticize our politicians about debacles in our national budget. Introducing "Budget Hero"!

Jefferson Public Radio (serving the State of Jefferson) has posted this new interactive game that puts you in charge of determining how to spend $3.3 trillion dollars. After deciding what programs to keep and which ones to cut, which taxes to raise and which ones to cut, you can then see the 10 year impact your choices would likely have on our nation.

The game was created by American Public Media, and it illuminates how truly challenging it can be to balance the US budget. Go give Budget Hero a try!
