Health Care Flow Chart Shows Maze of Bureaucracy in Obama Health Plan - Photo


House Republicans are passing around a new flow chart that shows the maze of Government Bureaucracy that would be the consequence of passing President Obama's Government Health Care Plan. Rep. Kevin Brady of Texas developed the chart:

Images are powerful and, in Washington, so are flowcharts. It was a flowchart unveiled on the Senate floor in 1994 that many believe helped turn the tide against the Clinton administration's effort to overhaul health care. That chart, produced by none other than Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter (then a Republican, now a Democrat) showed a complicated maze of government and medical programs patients would have to navigate.

Hoping to capitalize on that approach, House Republicans are sending around a similar chart today, developed by Rep. Kevin Brady, R-Texas. “Why should any patient be forced to give control of their health care over to this Faustian pit of Washington bureaucracy?" Brady said in a statement. . . . . MORE

I would like to see the chart that was made in 1992 whenHillary tried to shove her plan down our throat.
It would be interesting to see them side by side.

I took the liberty of utilizing commonly accepted organizational practices to redraw this chart:

Not nearly as "scary" now though.
