Visualizing America's Cash Outflows Between August 3 And August 15

We have previously presented this data in tabular format but because we realize that some readers visual learners, here is a compilation of total US Federal obligations (read cash outlays) between August 3 and August 15, this time from Reuters, at which point all the money runs out no questions asked. The total: $246 billion.

The day to day totals diverge modestly from what was presented before depending on calendarization, but the cumulative result speaks volumes.
