Budget of the United States Government

President Obama’s proposed 2012 Budget, unveiled on Monday, has been receiving a great deal of attention in the last couple of days. If you are interested in finding out more about which programs may be cut or emphasized under the plan, the document is available on the Government Printing Office’s website. The Budget contains the Budget Message of the President, information about the President’s priorities, budget overviews organized by agency, and summary tables. The GPO website also provides access to other related documents such as Analytical Perspectives, Historical Tables, and an Appendix containing detailed financial information. Prior Budgets are also available going back to 1996.

There is also an interactive breakdown of the budget on the Office of Management and Budget website, which helps to visualize how the spending is allocated.
