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.
