If you thought the size of the original Obamacare legislation was excessive at nearly 2,700 pages, you ain’t seen nothing yet. When all of the law’s new regulations and rules are written and finalized, it will take a national forest’s worth of trees to make all the paper on which to print them.
According to an analysis of the rules so far, CNSNews.com reports:
Bureaucracies in the Obama Administration have thus far published approximately 11,588,500 words of final Obamacare regulations, while there are only 381,517 words in the Obamacare law itself. That means unelected federal officials have now written 30 words of regulations for each word in the law.
And they’re essentially just getting started. It could be years before all of the initial rules are written – and that doesn’t include all of the subsequent regulations this massive new bureaucracy will churn out in coming years.
Expect more of this bureaucracy in the future
