requesting feedback on Budget visualization

I have been fascinated by data visualizations, and at the same time frustrated with spreadsheet presentations of the budget. So I combined the two into one, and came up with a Sankey Chart visualization of the FY14 Budget. Note that this is a rough draft, and just a chart of the summary data.

NOTE: If you click on the chart below, it will take you to the live site where you can interact with the elements a little bit.

    Bravo visual. Awaiting next version with even more bells and whistles. The N-G ought to borrow this.

    What kind of bells and whistles did you have in mind?

    A note that states the total amount in the 2014 budget, when one rolls the mouse over a section–the amount comes up, which is terrific. It might also be useful to show what percentage the amount is of the whole budget or the specific funding source.
    Wonder what others would like to be included?

    The Sankey chart has been moved to a different server – I noticed that the previous server was having issues and some of you could not get to it.
