interactive budget simulator

Pretty cool little gizmo here. Very helpful in showing people what would have to be done to make real cuts in the deficit, which is nice, though I'm not happy with the lack of some options. You can gut Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security, for instance, but there is no option to take a chainsaw to the military budget.

I suppose in that way it reflects contemporary American politics.

Overall, it's actually pretty easy for a Nazi Socialist Trotskyite like me who thinks Americans are coddled when it comes to tax burden.
