Fox News: "If They Can Do It: 'Reality' show challenges contestants to balance the budget."
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.
Spoiler alert: the group was able to balance the budget.
I'm of the mind that drastic cuts that are optional now should be done before they're mandatory later.

It was just as realistic, but funnier, when they did it in "Dave."

Kevin Kline did more work in that movie than our semi-retired President.
