If the chart looks bad, blame the author, not the data

Nathan Yau at Flowing Data is annoyed by this unnecessarily complicated chart made to ridicule Health Care Reform. It was created by Republicans Sam Brownback and Kevin Brady, and it’s been passed around approvingly in conservative circles by people who don’t really care if it’s accurate.

Looking at this horribly designed piece of propaganda makes me want to throw up. I’m throwing up right now. Dang it. Someone owes me a new keyboard.

Intentionally ugly Health Care Reform chart
