You think this massive pile of oppressive government regulation is bad?
Now for the real horror. The 2,700-page monstrosity known as ObamaRobertsCare is only an outline. Even now legions of scuttling bureaucrats wriggle their antennae in authoritarian ecstasy as they fill it out:
With the Supreme Court giving President Obama’s new health care law a green light, federal and state officials are turning to implementation of the law — a lengthy and massive undertaking still in its early stages, but already costing money and expanding the government.
The Health and Human Services Department “was given a billion dollars implementation money,” Republican Rep. Denny Rehberg of Montana said. “That money is gone already on additional bureaucrats and IT programs, computerization for the implementation.” …
The IRS, Health and Human Services and many other agencies will now write thousands of pages of regulations — an effort well under way:
“There’s already 13,000 pages of regulations, and they’re not even done yet,” Rehberg said.
What unemployment crisis? There will always be job openings for writers of senseless regulations — and collectors of the taxes to pay for their salaries.
