Holy comic book, Batman! Health reform is like the Riddler!

Comic books are simple, while healthcare policy is complex. That reality was illustrated by the recent release of a new graphic novel “Health Care Reform: What is it, why it is necessary and how it works.”Jonathan Gruber, a professor of economics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a consultant to the Obama administration when congressional Democrats were writing the measure, provided the written content for the comic book, the idea for which Modern Healthcare wrote about early last year. The purpose of the illustrated account, he said at a Tuesday event at the liberal Center for American Progress previewing it, was to counter the many inaccuracies about the law in an “accessible” format.
