GOV'S GEARBOXis a series of articles on government finances. Taxpayer money powers government. That taxpayer power is concentrated or dissipated as govenment turns its wheels. Sometimes it gains traction, sometimes it just digs deeper holes. We lay it out.
BEGINNER"S BUDGETis an easy tool for you to use to quickly design a budget for federal, state and local governments together.
INTERMEDIATE BUDGETThis is an excellent budgeting tool if you want more control than the Beginners Budget. Available to registered users at no charge.
ADVANCED BUDGETThe best budget tool, available to paid subscribers. A two-year subscription is only $24.95 and includes 10 DISPATCHES.
ADVISED BUDGETcut moneyYou can designate any of your completed budgets as your ADVISED BUDGET. This is the budget you advise your government to adopt. Your elected representatives will receive your ADVISED BUDGET, should you choose to DISPATCH it to them. Your Advised Budget is also automatically posted to the VoiceBox. If you designate a second budget as your ADVISED BUDGET, it supercedes the first. The first is still saved until you delete it, however it no longer is your ADVISED BUDGET.
VOICEBOXThe VOICEBOX magnifies your voice by combining it with others. All users' ADVISED BUDGETs are automatically posted to the VOICEBOX. These valuable opinions can be analyzed and reported to interested parties. Using VOICEBOX data, elected representatives can be more responsive to their constituencies. And you can apply more pressure to your elected representatives using VOICEBOX. For instance, if an elected representative is interested the level of taxes MyGovSpending users in her district think best, such data can be made available.
DISPATCHESOnce you have a budget you prefer, send it to your five federal elected representatives in Washington: the President, the Vice President, your two Senators, and your member of the House of Representatives. We DISPATCH them instantly by fax or email. We email a copy to you, too. Single dispatches are available for registered users at $2.95 per set. Each DISPATCH include one copy to each of your five federal elected representatives.

The world keeps turning and smart people never stop learning. Changing your budget as new information arises and as you develop new insights is healthy evolution. If you've modified your budget - DISPATCH it again. A package of 10 Dispatches is included with a two year subscription available for $24.95.
FORUMSVisit the forum and read what other leading citizens think about budget issues. Register and post entries, too.
SHARED BUDGETSIf you have a budget you would like to share with others, post it in the Shared Budgets section. Your fellow citizen policy-makers can review it. You can inspect budgets that others have posted, too. Once registered, you can copy a Shared Budget and modify it to fit your preference. If you wish, you can repost the shared budget under a new name.
