The Federal Budget in One Poster

Graphic designer Jess Bachman has created a pretty amazing image that breaks down the discretionary budget for the federal government, from the $515 billion going to the Deparment of Defense to the $13 million going to the Office of Governmental Ethics (unsurprisingly, the latter is the smallest one on the board).


The visual design is striking. It’s also impressive how the poster crams a lot of detail into a small space. It’s perfect for starting an argument with your conservative uncle about which areas should be cut!
