4. It's constrained by lack of input variables and line item detail but
it is definitely a reality based tool for explaining how little impact we have in changing the budget outcomes. I'd like to see more options to reduce the size of the defense budget and investment in infrastructure. This tool should be required teaching in our educational system.
