Have you been thinking you could do better a job than the U.S. Congress of coming up with a balanced budget? Deficit Hawk, a new, non-partison and educational Android app lets you get in on all the fiscal fun currently happening in Washington, D.C. Fix the federal budget deficit: cut spending, raise taxes, and see how each choice affects the country’s $1.3 trillion deficit. Choose from over 100 spending cuts and tax increases, using data from the Congressional Budget Office. Learn what happens if growth in appropriations for agencies other than the Department of Defense, reduced by 1% annually adds up to $326.7 billion over the next ten years.  Or see what would happen if corporate income tax rates increased by 1% annually.
