You cut the budget

Congress and the Legislature are spending most of their waking hours wrestling with the budget...and the general public is spending most of its waking hours criticizing what they've done (or not done) so far.

Here are a couple of chances to show you could do a better job.

One is from American Public Media, and deals with the federal budget, albeit a very simplified one. It's an updated version of their budget challenge from the 2008 campaign, adjusted to show a bigger deficit.

The other is from Gov. Chris Gregoire's office and deals with the state budget, although it, too, avoids some of the complexities of that budget.

But these are, after all, Internet games. The governor's site also has some background on the budget and priorities.
