Re: Slashing the Budget

I tried out that budget simulator a few days ago, twice. (I had reached an impasse on an article I was supposed to be writing.) I was able to get to a sustainable debt load without raising taxes. But I wasn’t sure how the simulators picked which proposals to include. There are a lot of budget cuts and policy changes I’d like that weren’t options.
