Here's the set-up: Carroll and his team took eight ordinary people from Albuquerque, N.M., and challenged them to balance the federal budget in a single weekend. The group, made up of four Republicans, three Democrats and one Democrat-leaning independent, was forced to fight it out until they came up with a way to solve Washington's biggest head-scratcher.I'm of the mind that drastic cuts that are optional now should be done before they're mandatory later.
Spoiler alert: the group was able to balance the budget.
