Get Ready For Obamacare!
Get ready for Obamacare! Whatever it winds up becoming …
Now that the GOP has officially surrendered on all fronts in the fight to defund U.S. President Barack Obama’s socialized medicine legislation, the time has come to feel the burn.
Back in 2010 we were told by then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that “we have to pass the bill so that you can, uh, find out what is in it.” Well the bill passed … all 906 pages (and 380,000 words) of it.
Since March 2010, though, the Obama administration has promulgated more than 100 regulations associated with the new law – spelling out how it is to be implemented. According to CNS, those regulations contain a lot more detail than the bill itself.
How much more detail?
“At an average of 1,100 words per page, the 10,535 pages of Obamacare regulations consist of approximately 11,588,500 words,” the website reports.
Wait … WHAT? Eleven million words?
Talk about “finding out what’s in the bill.”
U.S. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) has been bashing the cavalier, extralegal manner in which Obamacare is being enacted for months – referring to some of its arbitrary delays as “unconstitutional.”
“The president doesn’t get to write legislation, and it’s illegal and unconstitutional for him to try and change legislation by himself,” Paul said at the time.
We agree … of course that’s exactly what is happening here. And with the nation’s chief justice in his back pocket, we doubt Obama and his cronies are going to pay the Constitution much mind as they proceed to ram this abomination down the throat of the American free market.
In fact we suspect there’s something in those 11.5 million words that’s just for you …
