Obamacare in One Page

Congress used 2801 pages to explain Obamacare. Congressman Kevin Brady summed it up like this, plus gave us a nifty, easy to read chart.

  • $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.

As for the chart, here is a preview. Larger version in PDF format here.
