Ask the Readers: How Would You Balance America's Budget?
Editor's note: Congrats to our comment winner (Christine), Twitter winner (@BeforeYouInvest), and Facebook winner (Diana MS)!
The New York Times recently released an interactive game that puts you in charge of balancing our nation's budget. While not everyone will agree with all the assumptions made by the Times, this game is an interesting starting point for discussion.
How would you balance America's budget? What items would you cut? Would you raise taxes? Lower foreign aid? Rollback healthcare? You can list just one change you'd make, or give us your entire plan. Please keep the discussion civil!
