The 2008 Budget Poster

TheBudgetGraph.com has an interesting (and artistic) view of the United States’ 2008 budget.  The Death and Taxes 2008 Poster provides a quick view of what we’re blowing our cash on and the changes over the previous year.  Overall details are located in the lower-right corner.  I’m willing to bet that few Americans would have any idea of how much we’re spending on interest, the “Global War on Terror”, or even what a billion dollars really is (let alone a trillion).  If only people could think about this when Bush places drastic cuts on children’s healthcare while spending trillions on the destruction of Iraq.
