'You Fix the Budget' is an awesome new game from the New York Times that gives average Americans an idea of just how hard it is to even out the deficit. This game lets you control how much you raise funding or cut the budget in an attempt to even out the 2015 and 2030 deficit.

'You Fix the Budget' is a great way to see just how difficult it is for the American government to close the budget gap. Players can cut government contractors and raise retirement ages all in an attempt to reign in the $418 billion shortfall.
