Obama-Care Regulations Are 30x As Long As Law

From CNS News:

11,588,500 Words: Obamacare Regs 30x as Long as Law

By Penny Starr | October 14, 2013

(CNSNews.com) — 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…

Since these bills were signed into law by President Barack Obama in March 2010, various agencies in the administration have published 109 final regulations spelling out how they are to be implemented.

These are effectively add-on regulations to Obama-Care. But we can’t change ‘The Law Of The Land’! It is inviolate.

These 109 final regulations account for a combined 10,535 pages in the Federal Register, where the government officially published them.

The Federal Register presents the regulations in relatively small type with three columns of text on each page. CNSNews.com calculated that there is an average of 1,100 words on each of these pages by counting the actual words in one 78-page Obamacare regulation and then dividing by 78.

At an average of 1,100 words per page, the 10,535 pages of Obamacare regulations consist of approximately 11,588,500 words…

Which means that no human being has even bothered to read them all.

  1. I can’t tell if this is the Hundredth Monkey Effect or Conditional Probability Fallacy or Inverse Confusion Dependency.

    when no one can know the law, no one can follow it. then anyone can be accused of violating it….
    tyranny in a nutshell

      also, no one can accurately interpret most current simple laws (hence lawyers). is it possible anyone can accurately interpret this monstrous bureaucratic boondoggle?
      can any average (conservative) citizen get fair justice?

    All I can see is, We must see your papers. You cannot travel without your papers. One must see your papers to seek medical attention. One must submit. One must.
    This ‘one’ sez’s, Go to Hell. 1934 to 1945 is OK for Europe, Not for my country. Why take a giant leap backwards?

  4. The day is coming when blood will have to be shed to rid ourselves of this tyranny. Whether it be mine or theirs, one of us will get relief.

    15 times as many words in the old and new testament combined.
    At the average reading speed of 300 words per minute, over 27 days of non-stop 24 hour reading.

    I am certain there are no errors, contradictions or the potential for misinterpretations.
    What could possibly go wrong?

    • Any potty breaks? Snacks? Injections of methamphetamine to keep you awake for those 27 days of non-stop horror reading Government Regulations? Which would kill any ordinary mule, you know ..
