Fox | New Obamacare Regulations: 13,000 Pages and Rising

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.”

“Oh boy,” Stan Dorn of the Urban Institute said. “HHS has a huge amount of  work to do and the states do, too. There will be new health insurance  marketplaces in every state in the country, places you can go online, compare  health plans.”

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.

“It’s a delegation of extensive authority from Congress to the Department of  Health and Human Services and a lot of boards and commissions and bureaus  throughout the bureaucracy,” Matt Spalding of the Heritage Foundation said. “We  counted about 180 or so.”
