Good to see you!

We're sure you have an opinion about the federal budget. So how about sharing it with the candidates and the world?

Help us gather these opinions by "baking a participie" that the world, and the candidates, will see.

Slice ranking

Slice info

Mouse over a budget category to see more info about it here, including the budget functions that it covers, if applicable. Details about the spending for each budget function have been taken verbatim from here.


How should the US budget be spent? Participate by resizing the federal pie using the sliders. Since the budget is constrained, you will need to reduce a slice before you can increase another one.

When you're done, submit your pie, so we can consolidate them into something meaningful for other citizens and for the 2012 presidential candidates!

I'm all done, bake my pie!
