Taxes in, payments out

There was a story in the NYT this weekend on the disconnect between people’s desire to see less government spending in handouts versus the amount they receive. Paul Krugman had a quick post on that this morning, with an accompanying chart.

I actually did a post on this last year, where I charted this exact idea along with political leanings. Unfortunately, my data were a bit old. If anyone would like to send me more current data, I’d be happy to remake that chart!
