Building a budget that works for all of us is a matter of priorities. And to drive the point home, we invite you to Build a Better Budget, a game we developed with National Priorities Project and USAction.
In eleven simple steps, you can create a U.S. budget using real numbers in proposals from the Congressional Progressive Caucus, the current budget or House Republicans. Near the end, the budget game encourages you to submit your own ideas if even the Progressive Caucus proposal doesn't go far enough to make a better U.S. budget.
Begin the game now.
At Build a Better Budget, you make decisions on categories of federal spending like job creation, social services and the military. There are also options to increase or decrease revenue – by ending or extending the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy.
At the end of the game, you can share your budget and ideas directly with your Congressmembers. And we'll be taking your suggestions directly to the Super Committee and telling them to consider budget options not currently in play.
Create your better budget and help us shape the conversation.
