    Thought this might be cool thing for all those new-found budget nerds (Haha): The CEPR Deficit Calculator <= link

    You basically get the proyected debt-to-GDP ratio and a bunch of checkboxes on the side, as you check each you increase or decrease the deficit:

    Here's some of the budget options and how they'd affect the deficit over the period up to 2020:

    And well, there's many others in Defense, Retirement/Social Security, Environment, Health Care, Spending and Taxes. Try checking off the options that your politics can stomach and see how far YOU could lower the deficit. :) What are some of the policies you like, dislike? Are there some really outlandish ones?

    I found this one to be really strange, I never thought of it, didn't think it could be done, but hey interesting idea:
