'Debtbusters' game challenges players to balance the budget

October 31, 1995

The Howard County Chapter of the Concord Coalition will hold a "Debtbusters" game from 9 a.m. to noon Nov. 11 at Centennial High School, 4300 Centennial Lane in Ellicott City.

The game, created by the coalition, simulates the federal budget process. Players work in teams of eight and evenly divided between Democrats and Republicans. The goal is to produce a balanced budget.

The coalition, a nonpartisan grass roots organization, was founded by former U.S. Sens. Paul E. Tsongas and Warren B. Rudman to deal with federal deficit spending and debt accumulation.
