Good grief! If this thing doesn’t scare people off of ObamaCare, I don’t know what will. The smaller image below does not do it justice.
Jim Geraghty explains the history of the original devastatingly effective HillaryCare chart, this new chart, and the comparisons liberals have made to them and charts of the existing bureaucracy here.

Check out the headlines on the news that the GDP shrank this past quarter by 1%:
— NYT: U.S. Economy Shrank Less Than Expected in Quarter
— AP: Recession eases; GDP dip smaller than expected
— Reuters: U.S. economy fares better than expected in latest quarter
— CNN Money: The pain is starting to ease – GDP report
— WaPo: GDP Shrinks at 1 Percent, Sign Recession May Be Easing
— LAT: GDP beats expectations in second quarter

Ok – now, let’s play “Rewrite the Headlines.” Pretend this is the Bush administration’s economy the MSM is writing about. Ready. Set. Go.
