Bill of Health — a Good move

Good Magazine has this interesting graphical representation of the problems facing health care in the U.S. Considering how complex health care is, I think it’s a great attempt to put lots of information visually on one page to provoke conversation.

Another really cool thing Good is doing is hosting a Get Out the Vote bumper sticker contest. Reader submissions are really great. Here are two of my favorites:

I agree with the above comment. I was looking for something like this, although this is close, it is still a ways off. I’m also having trouble formating it. Looks great on screen though.

Is there a way to format this so it prints on one page, landscaped? Right now, it’s a lot of dragging in my browser, and the impact is really lost. It looks potentially cool…but then it doesn’t.
Thanks!
