The modern legislative process

When it comes to horribly complicated legislation, Obamacare was no piker (1600 pages!), but the legislation itself pales to what it became once the bureaucrats got their hands on it:

obamacare-pile

 

That’s 20k pages and counting. When we started letting Congress delegate its power to bureaucrats, this was the inevitable result.

It used to be that Congress’s time would impose some practical limit on the number of rules they could impose on us, but now that the executive branch makes most of the rules without the messy process of legislation, there’s no practical limit on the rules they can burden us with.
