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

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 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."

Cost of Insurance has already risen and it isn't in affect yet. Just got a notice from my life insurance last week and has quadrupled in price to where I can't even afford it anymore to bury me. they can play ell if they think I am going to purchase this stupid thing.

How do we obtain an exemption like all the other crooked bureaus have done?

What?????  There can be 4000000000 lawyers and 40000000000 tax laws for those that "Pay Taxes" !!    Those folks that don't .....White House Personel....Food Stampers(46,000,000), and Tax Dead-Beats, don't give a Rats-Axx about Tax Laws !    What Else is New ?????????????????????????????????          Semper Fidelis

Repeal the whole health care law in its entirety; scrap it all. We must fire all top level personnel involved, stop any more funding to the HHS, then start from scratch. This time let’s read the bill. This time let’s do it right.

Rafael,

Hopefully with piglosi out of the way as speaker when they do repeal and start over congress will read it first and put it up so we can before it is voted on.

Understand how deeply infiltrated the enemy is in the government.  They never cease in their efforts to enslave us or reduce the population to sustainable levels.  And we go to meetings and listen to pontificators on the constitution or just plain foolishness.  When are we going to get serious and start to fight back?

If Obama foments events to use as an excuse to implement Martial Law, as it’s been rumored, that would be the catalyst to start killing off the treasonous politicians and the people they subscribe to. i.e. The CFR, etc.  

All laws that can not be read and understood by the citizenry is unconstitutional.

article 28 of the constitution reads,,,Congress shall pass no law that they themselves are not subject too...when they start paying in to the system,,,i will

Instead of raising taxes and increasing government spending, see how a 3-year tax incentive plan for the wealthy will result in massive private spending and return the US economy back to robust health. Read a draft of the plan at http://www.pesplan.com and also add your contributions.

as a painter, if my job is not done right, i do not get paid. i say no quality good for the people work, then all should be fired and we re vote again and the hell with poly-tic-tions. poly being many and tics as an eratant.we need honest workers not bull-shiter's.

Everyone needs to get on public assistance.  Just quit working.  Quit paying taxes.

ALERT ALERT

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.

You don't get to interrupt me
