Nifty little function at (of all places) the New York Times.  Click here.  I fixed the budget in about 5 minutes, myself.  Achieved a balanced budget with 93% coming from spending cuts.

Have we entered some sort of bizzaro world where the New York Times wants to be fiscally conservative?  It was interesting, but they left off some of the choices I would have liked, which would have let me solve the whole problem with 100% coming from spending cuts.  Eliminate NPR, eliminate the Dept. of Education, eliminate the Department of Transportation, eliminate the Department of Homeland Security (not security functions, just all the duplication), Cut the EPA, etc.  It also doesn't include some items that would increase revenue such as quit regulating business to death so they can actually grow, create jobs and provide more tax revenue.  As the phrase goes - a good start, but only a start.
