Austan Goolsbee reproduces an easy-to-follow chart showing the differences between continuing the Bush tax cuts and the proposed Obama tax plan. Goolsbee was on The Rachel Maddow Show last month as she first showed the chart from Ezra Klein at the Washington Post. The figures came from the Joint Committee on Taxation.

Goolsbee's appearance can be seen in this post at Crooks & Liars, seen here.
