The game gives you the chance to say exactly how you would balance the federal budget. Spend or tax according to your values, assess the pros and cons of each action, and earn badges for a successfully balanced budget.

You can also experiment with different ideas to see the effects of a different approach. If you let it roll as it is, the game will show how current government commitments will affect our future's bottom line.
