Think you can manage Michigan’s public piggybank better than the politicians?
Today the Center for Michigan debutes a simulation game that lets you take a crack at balancing the state general fund budget.
It takes just a few minutes and gives you a sense of the debate in Lansing.
Whether you’re a government-cutting tea partier or a tax-and-spend liberal, the game offers real choices to cut spending, raise taxes, and balance the state’s controversial books.
Share your budget solutions with friends. Who knows, Lansing might even listen!
Here’s early feedback from one of the first game players: “I love it! And I balanced the budget in about three minutes, but I likely won’t be reelected”
