Just an update to a previous post titled Death and Taxes. There’s an updated 2009 version of the poster that seeks to provide a visual representation of where the money goes for the U.S. federal government budget.

CoolTools has a post about it here. They say this about the poster:

A democracy needs informed citizens. This chart can quickly educate you about your government in a new way, a way in which a long list of incomprehensible budget numbers can not. The brilliance of this chart is Tuftian way it diagrams quick sense out of the complexity of a superpower’s government and yet rewards close scrutiny.
