For example, would you be willing to pay an additional tax on the clothes you buy with your allowance? Should we cut benefits to those in need or cut education programs such as college grants? What would be the possible benefits and/or consequences of either one of these decisions? We need your help! Given the resources provided, your task, in small groups, is to analyze the internet resources provided, and acting as a congressional committee, prepare a 10 minute presentation you will share with the class during which you will propose your solution to reducing our debt.
