Here’s a flash game that lets you play with the budget. A number of policies actions are presented, and then their effects are visualized. The policies are sorted into the following categories: Defense & Diplomacy, Schools & Kids, Science & Nature, Housing & Living, Misc., Infrastructure, Health Care, Social Security, Interest (nothing you can do about that), and finally Taxes. It really drives home how much medical cost to the government is going to be a problem. I look at it and think, we need to reduce the benefits we pay out. I imagine Obama supporters look at in and think, we need to take over this industry to reduce costs.
