By The Independent Institute
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The MyGovCost Government Cost Calculator is a unique service from The Independent Institute that enables any American to clearly understand three aspects of federal government spending.
First, the Calculator helps you determine how much you will pay for various federal programs now and over the course of a lifetime.
Second, it compares those tax payments to the forgone earnings that would have been possible if such funds were kept and invested in private market accounts.
Finally, the Calculator enables you to see the difference between government expenditures and your tax payments, clearly illustrating the growing debt obligations you face in the future.
Unlike total or "per capita" government debt calculators currently available, the Calculator personalizes government spending, enabling you to see how much federal programs are costing you. The calculator shows you how much you are spending now and how much the government will cost you in the future.
