New Yorkers Suggest Revisions to the Federal Budget


On a lovely midsummer day we took Ms. Gizmo to the streets with her eight categories for allocating federal tax dollars. (See the chart below.)


After voters distributed 20 pennies into the eight categories we gave them a War Resisters League flyer to show how discretionary funds are spent in the federal budget.


As usual people said most money should be spent on education, jobs and health care.
