Update #7

New Backer Release and Video Sneak-Peek

Comment
Today we launched a major update to the Visual Budget Prototype for our backers. If you are a backer, you should have received an email reminder with your backer code and a link. You can now dig deep into the details of the Defense budget, Medicare, and other departments.

For our friends without backer codes, we have something cool for you too. Appropriate to current events, we have created an animated video, “A Look at Income Taxes”, which explores the income and tax burden of the 100 percentiles of Americans. You might be surprised about some of the numbers and their trends over time. Please take a look on YouTube, and feel free to share it with friends.


What else would you like to see in motion? Let us know in the comments!

Cheers,

The Visual Budget Team
