deathandtaxes_poster

Today you were supposed to pay your taxes and this handy poster nicely details how the government plans on wasting all that money. Updated for 2009, the Death and Taxes chart pulls data directly from the United States Government’s budget for each fiscal year—note how pronounced the Defense Department’s imprint is. But if you’d rather slice yourself with 1040 form-inflicted paper cuts to the throat than spend $24 on a poster depicting the colossal expenditures, there’s a virtual version after the jump that allows users to zoom in and navigate around the exorbitant wastefulness with a click of the mouse—for free!
