Via Cone, Jay Ovittore's budget breakdown and commentary.

I think I'll just kill myself now and get it over with.

Seriously, though, Jay has provided a valuable service by breaking down the budget. But while he's alarmed at the dollar amounts being cut from many departments, do you not have to pay attention to the percentages as well? If $23.4 billion slashed from the Department of Energy represents a 2 percent cut, does that not tell you there's still a boatload of money flowing through that department to perform necessary services and infrastructure?
