GOP Joint Economic Committee healthcare charts illustrate harmful effects of Reid bill

The GOP Joint Economic Committee compiled a series of charts that illustrate the harmful effects of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's (D-Nev.) healthcare takeover bill, including:

  • Tax increases (particularly on the middle class)

  • Employer effects

  • Marriage penalties and other bad disincentives

  • Consequences of non- or inadequately inflation indexed taxes

  • Cuts in Medicare

  • Subsidies for citizens vs. non-citizens

  • Health care outcomes and cost comparisons across countries

  • A detailed flow-chart on “How to keep your Dr. under the Senate bill”

All 38 charts can be seen here.
