Budget Hero Game

Here's Your Chance to Play What You Mean
What if you could decide how our federal tax dollars were spent? You can, if only in an imaginary way, by playing the interactive game, Budget Hero, recently launched by American Public Media.

The game allows you to set a federal budget based on your values. Play issue-related budget "cards" to levy or ease taxes. The game will deliver results -- as in how your choices might affect a budget 10 years from now.

With November election season not that far away, Budget Hero offers an interactive way to explore your take on national issues and to generate useful discussion.
