Health Care "Reform" flow chart

As you can see, it's real simple.

From Congressman Kevin Brady's web page:

"In addition to capturing the massive expansion of government and the overwhelming complexity of new regulations and taxes, the chart portrays:

* $569 billion in higher taxes;

* $529 billion in cuts to Medicare;

* Swelling of the ranks of Medicaid by 16 million;

* 17 major insurance mandates; and

* The creation of two new bureaucracies with powers to impose future rationing: the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute and the Independent Payments Advisory Board.

Brady admits committee analysts could not fit the entire health care bill on one chart. 'This portrays only about one-third of the complexity of the final bill. It’s actually worse than this.' "
