Can you improve the federal budget? Here’s a game to test you

Are you with Obama or McCain? Are you pushing for alternative energy or increased drilling? Would you cut military spending or increase homeland security? How about ending No Child Left Behind?

Difficult questions. And they’re usually left up to politicians. But it’s up to you in Budget Hero, a new game on American Public Media’s web site.

(Warning: I killed 20 minutes playing with this — so it’s probably not a good game for those in a rush or for those with a boss looking over their shoulder.)
