The GOP's Health Care Reform Org Chart

| Thu Aug. 20, 2009 4:22 PM EDT

Yesterday, Republicans annoyed with news reports that Democrats had decided to reform health care without them, released this chart to highlight the new bureaucracy that the Democrats' plan would create. You have to hand it to them. The chart is a pretty good visual of how complex the Democrats' reform plan really is. Health affordability credits? Health insurance exchange trust fund? Huh? You can see the full chart for yourself here (pdf). One notable omission: In perhaps a commendable show of Republican restraint, "death panels" don't seem to have made it on to the chart.
