Try your hand at cutting the deficit

Think you can cut the federal deficit better than those bozos in Congress? Here’s your chance to do it…at least on paper.

The New York Times has a new budget game with a series of options for various cuts. You might notice that some of the most popular solutions, such as eliminating earmarks or instituting medical malpractice reform, don’t get you very far, but reductions to entitlements like Social Security and Medicare do.
