‘Death & Taxes’: Where Does The Money Go?

President Obama has requested $1.421 trillion in discretionary spending in his proposed 2010 budget (13% more than 2009's). Where's all your money going? WallStats breaks it down in a handy 24" x 36" poster form representing more than 500 programs and departments receiving more than $200 million apiece next year. "Death & Taxes" includes upward and downward trends for each figure, with the many high upward numbers representing the presence of the economic stimulus funds that will likely put us in collective hock for generations to come. It's both fascinating and frightening to note, for example, that the Army's Humvee program will go up 43% to $1.532 billion, putting it on a par, more or less, with financial aid.
