Visualizing the President’s Budget Cuts

We wish we can claim credit for creating the following visualization of the budget cuts that President Obama has proposed for the U.S. government budget for 2012, but that properly belongs to Doug Ross. Enjoy!

Let’s illustrate the magnitude of Obama’s cuts.

Obama’s cuts aren’t even visible in this chart. Let’s zoom in.

Blowing it up about ten times allows us to see a tiny little sliver: those are the cuts.

If the President would like to see more green on that chart, without having to resort to using a microscope, the Independent Institute does have a starter list of suggestions that might be worthy of serious consideration….
