‘Graphic Illustrations’ of U.S. Spending via Heritage Foundation

The conservative think tank offers 39 charts on 'runaway federal spending' for free downloading.

The Heritage Foundation has released its 2010 Budget Chart Book, a highly visual and interactive online resource with charts illustrating the historical trends in U.S. government taxation and government spending levels.  

Visitors to heritage.org/BudgetChartBook  may download, post or e-mail any of 39 information graphics, 12 of which are new to this updated edition. Included are links to relevant Heritage research and tools for bookmarking, embedding and information sharing through Twitter, Facebook and RSS feeds.

“We’ve seen unprecedented concern and curiosity from Congress, the media and regular taxpayers about runaway federal spending and deficits,” says Nicola Moore, assistant director of Heritage’s Roe Institute for Economic Policy Studies. “The Budget Chart Book presents those issues in clear graphics and everyday terms.”
