New York Times Website: You Fix the Budget

spending-per-householdAre you sick of those big spenders in Washington? Well, the New York Times has a fun online tool where you -- the average Joe --- can cut entitlements (ain't easy, is it, cutting off your wealthy mother's Social Security), the defense budget or whatever else you think is a bloated mess. Hell, I get rid of a bunch of cabinet seats (such as Education) and cut just about everything. I'd privatize Amtrak, the U.S. Postal service and, well, the list is long. I'd go to the libertarian and get a hold of their comprehensive list to Downsize the Federal Government.
