ObamaCare Regulations So Far: 10,535 Pages

Written by Gary North on October 3, 2013

When the government passes a law, it must be enforced. The executive branch of the government then makes up the actual enforcement rules. It interprets the law and translates it into actual regulations.

The ObamaCare law was 2,000 pages long. That is just the beginning. Now the executive branch is building on its foundations.

The specific interpretations are published in the Federal Register, which is published daily by the federal government. It publishes about 80,000 pages of regulations a year. Each page is three columns of rules that can be understood only by very specialized and very expensive lawyers in a particular field.

CNS news sent a reporter to interview Democrat Congressman Henry Waxman. He asked Waxman if he had read all 10,535 pages. Waxman refused to answer. He said it was a propaganda question. He refused to answer.

You owe it to yourself to see one page in the Federal Register. Few Americans ever have. Go here. You will see a highlighted link: Today’s Issue of the Federal Register. Click it. You will see articles. Click the PDF of any article.  Then read just one column. You will not have to read all three to get the picture. Multiply this one column by 240,000. That is one year’s output.

This is the law of the land — not the laws that Congress passed and a President signed into law. What Congress passed and a President signed was only the beginning.

  1. No Bill should be longer then 10 pages and no LAW should be longer then ONE page ,,,

  2. Jesse Tomblin says:

    Just like the Law NO ONE has read anything but very small portions of it. Democrats have read far less than Republicans which is showing in their UTTER IGNORANCE of the DESTRUCTION of America the Law and the Regulations are causing. So if the American people wake up and shed their STUPIDITY for COMMON SENSE which thanks to Obama and his thugs is no longer COMMON and VOTE to replace those IDIOTS who are supporting the IGNORANCE AND STUPIDITY that is Obammycare.

  3. Police STATE !!!!!

  4. Had Moses come down Mt. Sinai with today's United States Constitutional Republic's laws, he wouldn't have come down the mountain with merely two tablets, but would have come down with a hernia and a busted back, and still needed hundreds of carts pulled by elephants and donkeys! And some people believe Yahweh's immutable triune moral law (His commandments, statutes, and judgments) are burdensome!?!

    "For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not burdensome. " ( 1 John 5:3)

    For more on how Yahweh's moral law applies today, see free online book "Law and Kingdom: Their Relevance Under the New Covenant" at http://www.bibleversusconstitution.org/law-kingdo….

    "When the government passes a law, it must be enforced. The executive branch of the government then makes up the actual enforcement rules."
    THAT is not the way I remember learning about government! Congress makes the law and the administration carries it out, and cannot change anything in the law without going back to congress to amendment it~~~I THINK ALL IN CONGRESS SHOULD READ THE CONSTITUTION AND PASS A TEST BEFORE TAKING THEIR SEAT!
    The American government from top to bottom is filled with people (COMMUNISTS) who have no idea, nor care, how a Constitutional Republic is supposed to function and THAT causes great problems!

  6. David in MA says:

    Me thinks the TEN COMMANDMENTS fits that description!

  7. Obama doesn't think all laws need to be enforced! – ask him about DOMA and Immigration.

    My bet is he walks this backwards . .

    A good compromise, a good piece of legislation, is like a good sentence; or a good piece of music. Everybody can recognize it. They say, 'Huh. It works. It makes sense.'

    Barack Obama

  9. You see it is showing and showing up on the negative. Obama does not believe in the Constitution and his followers do not care either. That is why he has such a disregard for it. You are right, an understanding of the Constitution and their willingness to follow should be the number one priority.

  10. Obama has a complete disregard for everything that the leader of the country must have. Therefore he must be impeached.

  11. bless2live says:

    obamacare care regulations, mindless!

  12. ConcernedCitizen says:

    Here is the problem with ObamaCare, if the private sector were to take on this endeavor and spend two years in implementation, billions in revenue and fail as miserably as this is. The heads of the people responsible would role, and a lot of people would be on the unemployment line. I speak from experience I have had to deliver many types of business software in my career and the accountability for these operations are very HIGH. This is just another example of the many failures under OBAMA and this administration and someone needs to answer for them. That someone is OBAMA and the OBAMA administration, we the people need to hold him and them accountable.

  13. Thanks, Gary, for the link to the Federal Register. I went there and found this notice:
    .
    Due to the Government shutdown, Federal Register services on the FDsys website will be limited. We will continue to post documents necessary to safeguard human life, protect property, or provide other emergency services consistent with the performance of functions and services exempted under the Antideficiency Act.
    .
    Too bad. I only found maybe 200 listings there. I checked a few and conclude that these agencies have no idea of the meaning of the word 'Necessary"!

  14. OBAMA! I despise you more than you and your SILVER-BACK Hermaphrodite civil partner can possibly comprehend! I do feel for your rent-a-kids. That's called CHILD-ABUSE! YOU are an IMPOSTOR and ILLEGALLY holding office and 535 in CONGRESS and the SUPREMES are guilty of SEDITION and TREASON. May you be sentenced to the new Kennedy suite in HELL. We cannot serve two MASTERS. LUKE 16. May I live long enough to witness Lexington Green II. Two tours in that BS hell-hole of Viet-Nam. Rigged BS!

  15. How is it legal to pass a law–ACA Obama Care, and add more language to it that exceeds the original intent? CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE is in order. ILLEGAL BS laws should not and will not be obeyed. EFF YOU!

  16. Rick Butkowski says:

    Here's a radical idea…let's scrap all of Federal and State law. Let's just go back to the the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights and start all over again. You know…Control, Alt, Delete and REBOOT! Let's print up bumper stickers that say "REBOOT"

  17. Joe Biden is his impeachment insurance. No one would dare want to replace Obama with Biden.

  18. I am sure Shane will reassure all of us that the 10,535 pages are somehow all the Republicans fault.

    Maybe the Republicans insist on a larger font?

  19. They all should be thrown out obcare distroyed our retirement we lost our free ins. Meds. Thanks to obama reid polsi we have lost $90,000. In the last three yrs paying for my ins. Cause I was younger than my husband, we should be aloud to SUE them all plus if it is so good whitehouse down should have obamacare only

  20. Congress should read the BIBLE and its qualifications for civil leadership and then dismiss themselves as unqualified for even dog catchers. If they won't, then the people are responsible (or they become complicit in their crimes) for removing them from office and replacing them with Biblically qualified men who will establish governments of, by, and for Yahweh instead of the people, based upon His immutable morality.

    I know this isn't going to occur anytime soon, especially with Article 6's Christian test ban and with it Biblical qualifications. That's why you should join me in exposing the Constitution for the Biblically incompatible document it is that's responsible for America teetering on the precipice of degradation and destruction.

    See "Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective" at http://www.bibleversusconstitution.org/BlvcOnline…. All 565-pages are online for free. See also our Constitution Survey in the right-hand sidebar.

  21. Sadly, I'll have to agree with you. Despite my dislike for what Obama has done (that's putting it mildly), if i had to chose, i'd choose Obama. If Biden became president then America would be _____ more than it is right now!
    That's probably why he (Obama) chose him (Biden) as the vise president …

  22. I laughed at the last part. I pray that, if Shane does try to pin the blame on the Republicans for the length of the "regulations", at least 50.01% of Americans don't believe that crap.
    Loved the light sarcasm, by the way.

  23. Devasahayam says:

    I remember a Democrud-dominated Congress (both House and Senate) doing something quite similar in 1988 (on the Canada-US Free Trade Agreement, later morphed to NAFTA). The quickness with which it was passed in the US (Canada passed it slower, but not due to actually reading it — the entire agreement was quite unncessary as there already existed freer trade between US and Canada than between Canada's 10 Provinces, mostly due to intransigence of ON and QC) showed plainly that it could NOT have been read-through.

    So, this is the rule with Dhimmicruds — pass first, then let the ones they're supposed to represent deal with the consequences.

  24. Devasahayam says:

    Methinks vast bulk of Congress only to be qualified to be dustmen (Brit slang for trash-picker-upper) — and that only if they put themselves in the bin along with the trash!

  25. It's not about healthcare and, it's certainly not about personal freedom. It's all about political power. And both Parties, in one way or another, are into it up to their armpits. With the Democrats it's always about votes and political power. With the Republicans, it's the same . . only they are more subtle about it. No matter who's in the White House government always grows and liberty yields . . the only difference between Democrats and Republicans is the rate of speed at which liberty is lost. To both parties, the Constitution is merely an inconvenience.

  26. Although I am reluctant to agree completely with your statement much is certainly true. However, as I see it we can accept it as not changeable or change it. Things do not have to be this way. We have a constitution all elected officials are sworn to uphold, but very few do so. The ones who do it seems are criticized for it by at least the main stream medial and even worse members of their own party. The good ole boys go along to get along crap is no longer acceptable and we the voter must begin to hold politicians all politicians accountable for their actions. Whatever has to be done we need as a nation to do or the politicians will, as they are currently doing, take us down the primrose path to destruction. Oh, we all know they see themselves as having good intentions but like the saying goes the road to hell is paved with good intentions. The constitutional checks and balances are supposed to prevent what is happening now, but when the checks and balances are bypassed it is the beginning of the end to this once great nation.

  27. Too Many Laws:

    Sounds like there's way too many laws as a result of this Government (god the state) created by the god "We The People", doesn't it ?

    When are all you Constitutionalists that "vote" for these morons (and moronettes), going to get it ?

    Too Many Laws vs. Easy Yoke:

    “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, And I will give you rest. Take My yoke (i.e., His Law 1 John 5: 2 & 3, as well as His tithe [tax] system) upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart; and ‘YOU SHALL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS.' (Jer. 6: 16).   My yoke is easy, and My load is light.” Matthew 11: 28 – 30.

    He told us that if His people ” … shall humble themselves (e.g., quit thinking we’re the sovereign, take our proper place and quit usurping His), and pray, and seek my face (e.g., He’s to be the ONLY law giver), and turn from their wicked ways (e.g., enforce His Laws, Statutes and Judgments); THEN will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 

    There's less than 1,000 of His Laws in Scripture!  How many laws are we as a nation burdened with ?! 

    "For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not burdensome." (1 John 5:3)

    The only way to save this nation is to turn back to Him, His Perfect Moral Laws, Statutes and Judgments, i.e., His Kingdom/Will On Earth. State vs. God.

  28. Dave, Bingo !
