Your range of years is quite broad. It brings in the Reagan revolution in the 80's. You know, when Reagan repeated the economically trained Kennedy, and reduced taxes. On everyone.

Result more revenue for the feds, and a boom for the economy.

Now I don't buy into the concept of progressive income tax, nor anything else that has progressive in it. By the way, what is so progressive about adopting President Wilson's ancient and failed 100 year old concepts?

The part of the chart that I kind of like is where the green bars are decreasing toward where the maroon bars.

I am sure when you add 2011, and 2012 that the vertical scaling will have to be increased by a factor of 2. You know, to pay for all the free stuff some of us will be getting. I look forward to your posting these future charts.
