Here YOU can fix the US Budget.

That was fun.  I ended up with a surplus.  Remember to write me in on November 6th!

I also ended up with a surplus. If you get elected on the write-in vote, I can be your Treasury Secretary !

You bet.

We may have to put 5thGuardsTankArmy up against the wall though. He just can't seem to get behind the new boss.

Easy to do what is needed when you don't have to worry about running again for office.

I actually found it hard to cut much other then the military, or govt wages or number of govt workers. Every time I wanted to cut something I found myself thinking of the people who would be effected, or stuff like cutting farm subsidies. Cutting the farm subsidies would be like walking into a minefield. Not a political one (which it would be), but an economic one as all the farm subsidies are intertwined throughout the world in a careful dance of each country trying to keep it's farming sector competitive. If one group were to cut farm subsidies out of the blue without mutual cuts from competitors and such I would think bad things would happen.

What I found shocking though tbh is that you guys don't have a sales tax. It may be the most annoying tax in existence, but it's also the fairest.

Then there's stuff like carbon taxes. I wouldn't want a carbon tax going into general revenue, I would want it earmarked for research into green technology.

So to reach a balanced budget without cutting spending in area's that I would deem unacceptable would require tax increase, to everybody. Something your government seems terrified of doing. *shrug*
