Big Day For Health Care Reform

It's been a busy day over at The Treatment. House Republicans released a confusing chart this morning depicting what health care in America would look like if the House Democrats get their way. Jonathan Cohn's take:

It's confusing, if colorful--full of boxes, lines, and all sorts of hard-to-say acronyms. Which, of course, is the point. ...

But these charts--and, more important, the Republicans who use them as propoganda--tend to ignore one inconvenient fact: American health care is already complex. Ridiculously complex. ... So just to make sure that fact isn't lost, we've developed our own chart--a chart of American health care as it is today, in all of its convoluted glory.
