Do It Yourself Debt Reduction

I just try to make sure my bill payments are smaller than my income and I'm putting away money for a rainy day and retirement.  But the NY Times gave me a chance today to take a shot at reducing the deficit.  Not easy.  Take a shot, and then go back to ranting.  Here.

Reduce the deficit? Nuts to that! I tried out the widget and got a $211B surplus by 2015. I'll have the national debt paid down by 2030! Let's rock!

Very cool find, John!
