Death and taxes

The Marginal Revolution economics weblog today linked to a clever graphic on federal discretionary expenditures.

But a warning to the reader -- the graphic overstates its case unnecessarily by focusing only on the discretionary budget. Its point would have been still true, and only somewhat less dramatic, using all federal expenditures.
