360KID Part of Team Releasing Budget Hero v2.0

360KID, an AEP member, in cooperation with the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and American Public Media, released a new version of Budget Hero, the federal budget balancing game. According to Scott Traylor, Chief Kid and CEO as well as an AEP board member, “…this product demonstrates the difficulty in making any decision to try to balance the federal budget, regardless of your political affiliation!”

At a July 13 event on Capitol Hill, Senators Jeff Sessions (R-AL), ranking member on the Senate Budget Committee, and Mark Udall, (D-CO) embraced the game as a way to begin their budget discussions.

“Budget Hero provides facts—not spin or ideological talking points—such as exactly how much we spend on foreign assistance, the military budget, health care and on entitlements, and what difference it would make to cut or eliminate them, or to increase them,” explained former congresswoman Jane Harman, who is director, president, and CEO of the Wilson Center. “At a time when the Congressional conversation about the budget has all but broken down, we are here…to provide a teaching tool to the American people…That way, the American public can become the heroes we need.”
