Health Overhaul Boiled Down To A Flowchart

If you think health-care overhaul is hopelessly complicated, maybe a flowchart will help.

A blueprint for what the proposed changes to the health system would mean for you was laid out by The Nation's Washington editor Chris Hayes during a Q&A session at a recent Netroots Nation conference.

Then Nicholas Beaudrot, blogging at Donkeylicious, turned Hayes's rat-tat-tat breakdown into a graphic. Click on the snapshot image or here to see an enlarged version that you can actually read.

We've got our own nifty guide to what the overhaul might mean for you. Check out the interactive package from NPR's Richard Knox to step through the options.

Video replay: Here's Hayes's four-minute-and-forty-six-second drill on health-care reform. He even turns death panels into a laugh line. Really.
