Balance the California Budget ... if you can!
Interactivity makes life more ... well, understandable? At least more fun? Try your hand at the California budget!
The LA Times has a little "game" you can play to balance the state's
budget. Guess what? It's hard. Well, duh, right? If it were easy, it would be done already.
Interactive Budgeting Game!
As you craft your proposal, the Deficit Meter will show your progress.
Try your hand at closing California’s budget shortfall, estimated at $24 billion. It’s not easy, but it can be done. Cut spending, raise taxes and/or borrow to get the state out of the red.
For each choice -- drawn from proposals from across the political spectrum -- The LA Times has tried to give some sense of the effects.
