Hey, America. This is a chart of one third of your new healthcare system. The entire bureaucracy will not fit on one chart it's so complex. From Congressman Kevin Brady's (R-TX) website:
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.
How's that hope & change look now?
