There is now a smartphone app that will let you enter your zip code into it and then it will list how much federal money is spent in the zip you currently occupy.
The app hyper-localizes United States government checkbook spending plus farm subsidies and 2.5 million federal employees to your zip code, or any zip code across the country. You canâ€™t complain about our politicians if you donâ€™t take the time to see the massive money flows into your backyard and zip code. The most frequent response, â€œIâ€™m in the wrong business.â€
The app is the brainchild of www.OpenTheBooks.com non-profit founder Adam Andrzejewski. Free download in The App Store or Google Play Store.
CAUTION: Do not use this app in the vicinity of the District of Columbia as it will likely cause your phone to attempt to overclock and then spontaneously combust.
