If you think you can do better than the current or past administrations, get yer deficit on with this Federal Budget Simulator. I managed to create a surplus mainly on the backs of old people, the military, and agriculture. I might go back and redistribute to more heavily cut corporate subsidies while restoring some social security.
It’s harder than you think, though, and you have to be pretty ruthless. Sorry, Ruth, we just can’t afford you.
