Death and Taxes, 2012
Via Jess Bachman
Hi. I’m Jess Bachman. Every year I spend two months researching and creating this visual record of our tax dollars at work…
…”Death and Taxes” is more than just numbers. It is a uniquely revealing look at our national priorities, that fluctuate yearly, according to the wishes of the President, the power of Congress, and the will of the people. Thousands of pages of raw data have been boiled down to one poster that provides the most open and accessible record of our nations’ spending you will ever find. If you pay taxes, then you have paid for a small part of everything in the poster. “Death and Taxes” is an essential poster for any responsible citizen or information junkie.
Death and Taxes is available as a poster. When printed, it’s six square feet.
