Here's the most un-fun game ever! How would you solve Oregon's $3.5 billion budget deficit?
Would you raise income taxes and annoy the rich? Or would you push a sales tax that punishes the poor? Would you foist prisoners and the mentally ill on broke-ass counties? Or would you fire teachers? Should disabled kids leave their families for institutions? Or should we exile infirm senior citizens instead?
But be warned: It's a sumbitch. Seriously, after finding myself forced to summarily wound thousands of Oregonians (sorry all you poors and state workers!), I might snap the next time I hear some Republican from a cushy McMansion district glibly say something as callous as, "Well, it's time to live within our means."
Leave a comment and dish on how awfully you did.
