Fixer-Upper or Teardown?

Margaret Sanger-Katz's "Is America's Health Care System a Fixer-Upper or a Teardown?" performs a great service in trying to use house renovation and re-model analogies to various health care reform proposals in September 22, 2019 New York Times.  The problem, sorry Tim Enthoven, is that the prose is poorly illustrated. By this I mean, if someone supports "tear down" then the image should be of a complete tear down as distinguished from a tear down and rebuild as X or tear down and rebuild as Y. 

Apart from that, I love this bold effort to make the health care debate more accessible to New York Times readers. Heck, I'd be pleased if all of the candidates evidenced that they had read and digested it.
