Missouri Voters Say No (Decisively) To Health Care Mandate

Most of you have heard about the MO vote I won't belabor the point.  The media are spinning it several different ways.

However, I thought you might like to see this.  Congressman Kevin Brady, TX-8, put his staff to work to research all the elements in the 2700 page health care reform law and draw a diagram of all the parts.

This is way cool, because each element they define has a reference to the paragraph in the law that you can look up if you doubt the existence, or the task, the new agency, task force, committee, panel, or advisory group has the authority to perform.  I am impressed by how powerful this makes the Secretary of Health and Human Services.

I put a smaller version of it here, but if you want to see the poster-size blow-up, go here.  You can zoom in on specific parts of the overall chart.

It's really kinda mind-boggling.
