Make Your Own Deficit Reduction Plan

The Wall Street Journal has a great tool allowing users to choose from a selection of spending cuts and tax increases and measure their effect on deficit reduction.  Great for Econ classes, or any other class dealing with current issues.

It might be a fun library debate activity at lunch: students bring in their own plans and discuss the differences.  It's also interesting what options aren't available--reducing oil/gas subsidies, for example.
