Gosh, it's easy to balance the budget if you aren't afraid of raising taxes.

Thank you for sharing. A bit simplistic, of course, but exactly what the public needs to understand the concept that the options are drastic cuts, drastic tax increases, or both.

I find the structure of the setup a little problematic. There are several which are binary options, and they are represented by very short bars, which, at a glance, implies that they'd save less... Really, the bars should be proportional (or, given that some of the ones they have there are drops in the well, logarhythmicly proportional) so there's a visual sense of how much each cut could save. And they don't have the "Hold a constituational convention so we can address the real problem" option.

I was playing with this earlier today. I think I let out all the prisoners. :)
