Today we released The President’s 2016 Budget in Pictures, a series of colorful charts telling the story of the priorities in the president’s budget. For instance, this is how President Obama proposes allocating $1.15 trillion in discretionary spending, the part of the budget that has to be determined annual in the budget process:
Military spending of $625 billion would account for more than half of discretionary spending under the president’s proposal, leaving just 46 percent of the discretionary budget, or $530 billion, to spend on all non-military discretionary programs.
For all the pictures that tell the story of the president’s budget proposal, check out The President’s 2016 Budget in Pictures.
