"You Fix the Budget"

Today, you're in charge of the nation’s finances. Some of your options have more short-term savings and some have more long-term savings. When you have closed the budget gaps for both 2015 and 2030, you are done. Make your own plan, then share it online.

So it's time to put up or shut up.

I solved the budget problem by closing some tax loopholes and letting the bush tax cut expire. You guys know I would had fix most of it by just ROLLING BACK THE REAGAN TAX CUTS LOL.



But please give this a shot and tell everyone how you balanced the budget.

Your link just goes to the default page. When you balance the budget a yellow box will appear saying you solved the deficit, a link will be in the box. When you're done, copy/paste the link shown in the box. (It will change if you make further adjustments after getting rid of the deficit.)



And as for Social Security, I wouldn't mind working for a couple more years before being able to collect if it means a better budget outlook.

You both are naughty naughty people lol. But I guess the U.S. can't be the mother for other counties forever but at the same time the U.S. and other countries can't keep screwing other poorer countries also. Chili, Haiti, Africa are great examples. So in a sense waitingtables is "wrongly right" I guess I'll say lol.

It just makes sense when your own nation is in peril that you would hunker down and worry less about other ones.
