Lawyers Have Already Drafted 13,000 Pages of Regulations for New ObamaTax Law

As Team Obama is ‘spinning’ the facts as fast as they can trying to convince everyone that Obama does not believe the mandate is a tax… you really have to start wondering.  First of all the Obama legal defense team used the tax argument while making their case to the Supreme Court.  Plus if you go back to the early versions of the ObamaCare bill, the mandate was written as a tax and then changed to a penalty, to make it more palatable.  And then the Supreme Court upheld the individual mandate by re-writing the bill and calling it a tax.

But the true tell is that Officials have already drafted 13,000 pages of new regulations for the new ObamaTax law.  Imagine that… in only a week? NOT!!!


It’s a lawyer’s dream!  America’s nightmare!

Officials have already drafted 13,000 pages of new regulations for the new ObamaTax law.

FOX News reported:

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.”

“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 market places 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.”

There has been much focus on the mandate that all Americans obtain health insurance, but analysts say that’s just a small part of the law — covering only a few pages out of the law’s 2700.

“The fact of the matter is the mandate is about two percent of the whole piece of the legislation,” Spalding said. “It’s a minor part.”

Much bigger than the mandate itself are the insurance exchanges that will administer $681 billion in subsidies over 10 years, which will require a lot of new federal workers at the IRS and health department.

“They are asking for several hundred new employees,” Dorn said. “You have rules you need to write and you need lawyers, so there are lots of things you need to do when you are standing up a new enterprise.”

For some, though, the bottom line is clear and troubling: The federal government is about to assume massive new powers.

Hat Tip to Gini and Gateway Pundit

Then there’s this…  The Obama Administration has already lined up an army of IRS agents to dole out fear and punishment.
