MinnPost image

UNDATED — Republicans and Democrats have been going back and forth over ways to balance the state’s $6.2 billion budget deficit, while the rest of us just shake our heads.  But as the famous saying goes, “if you think it’s so easy, why don’t you do it yourself”.  Now you actually can.

The online newspaper MinnPost has created a budget balancing calculator, it gives you options to choose from like: increasing a variety of revenues, end certain tax breaks, and cutting spending — as you click on the options the deficit will shrink.

Go ahead and give it a try and see how well you do.
