You know what they say, there are two things in life you can’t avoid: death and taxes. So you’d better make sure you understand both. Death & Taxes 2010, the infographic, will show you exactly how the Obama administration is planning to spend your money. Completely updated and newly released, it contains over 500 programs and departments and almost every program that receives over 200 million dollars annually. The data is straight from the president’s 2010 budget request and will be debated, amended, and approved by Congress to begin the fiscal year. All of the item circles are proportional in size to their spending totals and the percentage change from 2009 is included to spot trends and disproportion.
If you pay taxes, then you have paid for a small part of everything you see here. “Death and Taxes” is essential reading for any responsible citizen or information junkie.
