Excerpt

Run by the Concord Coalition, the exercise will divide participants into small groups, each of which will be given real-life options and numbers related to the nation’s budget and debt situations. The small groups will be asked to discuss policy alternatives to reduce projected deficits. They’ll be instructed to talk about discretionary and defense spending, Medicare and Social Security reform proposals, and taxes.
