Infographic: how much big corporations pay in taxes

Interesting information visualization from Mint.com, data provided by Forbes.  Note how they take a touchy subject and try to treat it in a neutral way.  The round edged font is friendly, not alarming or provocative.  So is the choice of color palette.  The information hierarchy is also notable.  The most provocative figure, the percentage corporations pay in tax, has relatively less weight and field space than their absolute contribution.  Compare that to your own tax rate.
