The LA Times has come up with a super fun interface for you the reader to decide what to cut to get rid of California's budget deficit.
The punch line is that if you leave K-12 school funding alone and cut everything else the most they allow you to cut, you still have $11,085,000,000 to go to eliminate the deficit.
Of course then they provide a section on how to "increase" revenue by allowing you to increase taxes in certain areas. In typical MSM fashion though it appears to fail to take into account that when you increase taxes, spending habits change and net revenue may not be what was predicted.
Enjoy: BE JERRY BROWN
Update: the Sac Bee also provides a fun game to stop the brokest state in the union from being broker.
