Okay Smarty-Pants, YOU Fix the Deficit

This week, I'd like to share with you an online tool that allows you to run a variety of scenarios which allow you -- yes, you -- to solve the federal budget deficit.

The tool is provided by The New York Times, and I found it to be extremely helpful in understanding the real-world decisions behind all the political rhetoric. The deficit is definitely solvable, as the tool will clearly show you. But it is going to be extremely painful. The question is: will our leaders be able to muster the political will to make it happen?

Click on the image below for a quick tour of this fascinating tool, then try it out for yourself. If you'd prefer to skip the video and go straight to the online tool and accompanying article, click here.

And have a wonderful week!
