Why increase technology spending? If the research serves a useful purpose, the market will make it worthwile without government support.

I tried it, but I cut too much, and it wouldn't let me reduce taxes past 30%

Oops!
You've cut so much that the federal budget now contains a substantial surplus. Many economists warn that this budget may help induce or prolong a recession, and ordinary citizens demand a refund. You might want to cut taxes or raise spending.



Damn...need to cut more taxes

There is a group of Republican congressmen who have a plan to pull $500 Billion out of the budget. Its starting to pick up steam.

I am not an economist, but why not use percentages for each major funding group, and then distrubute the monies that you have, instead of the monies that you think you WILL have?

I know that I don't make my purchases on the income I think I will have in 10 years, so why should the government?

If you are going to nitpick, at least use proper capitalization.
