The publishers have now done so, for which I would like to thank them – this is a public service that is greatly appreciated.  I don’t know how long the article will remain in the open access part of their website, so I strongly advise anyone who cares about the fiscal future of this country to read it now (and tell your friends).

“Dynamic scoring” of U.S. budget proposals would be a disaster.
