The Budget Game

Hey, this is cute--the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget had ginned up a clever little do-it-yourself budget cutter app (that's old news) and the Dallas Morning News has repackaged it as an interactive toy for its readers (not quite so old, but still new to me). 

I think it's cool.  I know the left tends to demonize CRFB as an avatar of Pete Peterson, whom they see as death on all entitlement programs.  Maybe, but I think you can oppose his tastes while recognizing that his numbers are pretty good, some of the best.  In a world where no one running office can so much as dare think about specifics re government budgeting, I suspect that only a billionaire can get away with talking like this.
