Visual Map of the US Budget

Are you a visual learner?  You may benefit from this NY Times infographic of President Obama’s 2012 Budget Proposal.  $3.7 trillion never looked so good!  You can zoom in and explore different agencies and see where your money is being spent.  Rectangles are sized by proposed spending and colors indicate percent change from previous year. Darker red rectangles represent bigger drops from the 2011 budget and darker green greater increases.
