Death and Taxes

Jess Bachman has published his 2009 edition of "Death and Taxes", a superb visualization of the Federal budget. If you don't feel like reading the full text, the poster is a much more pleasant way to see how the Federal government is spending our tax dollars in 2009.

Remember that this is last budget of the Bush administration - but Bush didn't get it finished so Obama had to pass the previous administration's final appropriations in March.

The 2010 budget is where we see Obama's budget office at work for the first time (headed by super-nerd Exonian-Princetonian-LSE-Marshall-Scholar Peter Orszag). I'd love it if Jess would draw up the 2010 budget compared to Bush's last budget (and compared to Obama's original proposal before going through the Congressional budget process).
