Jess Bachman, a 31-year-old graphic genius has boiled down the largest government budget ever into a single poster, a poster that will show you (and your students and your boss and everyone you know) exactly how we’re spending all that money. Every year for the last several years, Bachman has spent two months researching and creating a visual record of how the United States government spends our tax dollars. The end result is a 24”x 36” glossy poster—a visual story of how money moves in and out of the government.
In visual detail Death and Taxes exposes and highlights our national priorities for 2012. The numbers are public knowledge but always hidden in thousands of pages of text. Thanks to Bachman’s skill as an artist and thoughtful determination that our nation’s spending should be for public consumption, we can become more knowledgeable citizens.
For anyone who has ever paid taxes, you deserve to know how your money is being spent. Thanks to Bachman we can. This is urgent, and you can do something critical right now: you can educate yourself and every taxpayer you know about what’s really happening.
