More Charts!

morecharts.jpgHealth Care for America Now has released another handy-dandy chart detailing how health-care reform will work. There's also a pretty clean page of text explaining what health-care reform will do for different groups of people. It would be nice if they'd include some larger jpegs, and maybe some color, but hey: every little bit helps. Click on the image for a larger version, or head here to download your own.

HR 3200, which the chart purports to summarize in 2 sparse pages, is 1017 pages long, with 18 separate Titles. Now, any comprehensive health reform needs to be complex, and summaries are just that, summaries, but that chart is barely fitting to be the Executive Summary to a comic book explanation for 6 year olds.

Who knows what it will look like if it goes through reconciliation.

Guaranteed, it won't look like *this*!

This must have been printed before the Public Option was frittered away and Baucus excluded almost all businesses that don't currently provide insurance from the employer mandate.

if it's so simple, then why isn't it so easy for the politicians to explain? Why does it take over 1000 pages for the bill?
Our government clearly has no interest in our health care. Or they wouldn't be doing what they are doing.
They seem to care about taking over our health care, though.

Someone procrastinating at work should color this in using MS Paint.
