With the burgeoning national deficit, tight fiscal management is more important than ever. And yet Democratic and Republican leaders seem unable to compromise when it comes to cutting causes and raising taxes.

Stay abreast of what is happening to your tax dollars as they are funneled through Washington D.C. by downloading the U.S. House of Representatives Committee of Ways and Means app (free).

The Ways and Means Committee is one of the most powerful committees in government, managing all taxation, tariffs and other revenue-generating programs and policies. In addition, the committee oversees Social Security, unemployment benefits and Medicare, among others.

The app includes everything you need to know about the committee, including committee membership, subcommittee membership, a tax tracker and press releases. It also includes direct access to the committee’s Facebook, Twitter and YouTube accounts.

Do you want to contact the committee? All pertinent contact information is available via the app. You can even sign up for email alerts to ensure you don’t miss any significant decisions or policy changes.

All opening statements and floor statements can be read via the app. And if you want to read what media outlets are covering when it comes to the Ways and Means Committee, that app links to dozens of editorials and news articles from the likes of USA Today and others.
