What's new in this version (1.6):
- Fixed two Honeycomb bugs (Android 3.0).
Try your hand as fixing the US Nation budget deficit! It's harder than you think.
If you are sick and tired of politicians negotiating our future behind closed doors, then take matters into your own hands and fix the problem yourself.
This app lets you make over one hundred spending cuts and tax increases, all calculated by the Congressional Budget Office (a non-partisan office of Congress). Do you think taxes on the rich should be increased? Do it. It won't eliminate the deficit. How about increasing the Social Security retirement age? Not enough either.
You make the tough choices. Then when you've got it figured out send a report to your friends or to your elected representatives in Congress.
Whether you are Republican, Democrat, Independent or Tea Party; whether you are young or old, black or white, tall or short it won't be easy. But it's not impossible and our elected officials need to hear from us in a more meaningful way than just shouting at them in town hall meetings.
All the data presented in this app is from the CBO. There's no partisan spin here, just real facts on what it will take.
If you like this app I hope you will take a look at my other apps in the market. Just scroll down to where is says "View more applications."
