A Viral History first:
Rather than giving you a long, complicated post about President Obama’s 2013 budget, with lots of confusing charts and small print, this time I decided simply to ask a friend to hold his i-Phone camera while I just told you what was up, face to face. So here it is, our first video.
Please humor us on the rough edges. Over time, we’ll get sharper with our production values. But for now, let us know if you think the experiment a successs — and don’t be shy about constructive criticisms! This is new territory for us. And, of course, special thanks to our excellent cinematographer, Peter Matz.
By the way, the source for all the charts I’ve used here is the Historical Tables section of President Obama’s 2013 budget, straight from the OMB web page. Enjoy. Just click on the image above.
