Check Boxes, Solve Deficit

dontcutourbudget Check Boxes, Solve DeficitAs it turns out, solving the Federal deficit is not at all difficult and is in fact merely a matter of checking off certain boxes on a form.

In stark contrast to the ineffectual checkmarks presented to the American electorate on November 2, a feature on The New York Times‘ website is now offering readers an immediately comprehensible, quick-and-dirty set of options for fixing a deficit that Alan Greenspan says could create another bond-market crisis.

By clicking on items like “Reduce the Federal Workforce by 10 Percent” or “Bank Tax,” readers can return the U.S. government to fiscal responsibility in less than five minutes.

Maybe Federal officials don’t have Adobe Flash Player 10, and that is why our government has so much debt.
