Obamacare Complexity

Recorded on January 26, 2011

It's time for common sense; I'm Ernest Istook.

If you’ve ever tried to pull the weeds from your lawn, you can appreciate the problems of defending Obamacare. The healthcare law is designed to spread everywhere- sending out seeds and runners to make it impossible to control. That’s why total repeal is the best solution -but that’s illusive. So defending Obamacare requires tracking down each new entity it creates.

Originally, some claim there were 159 of them. But the Congressional Research Service concluded that it’s impossible to count all the parts of Obamacare because they can generate endless new subdivisions. Plus, the same congress that failed to adopt a budget for the rest of government, never-the-less appropriated billions for Obamacare trying to guarantee that it will have money for years to come. That’s why the new congress will have to work hard to turn off that new spigot of tax payer dollars.
