Obamacare Regs 2.5X As Long as the Bible

Now this is some perspective.
Past calculations of Obamcare's length focus on the number of pages it contains. But, as any high school or college student can tell you, the number of pages depends on font size, line spacing, and margins. So, some have calculated Obamacare to be over 2,000 pages long. This was true when it was in bill form. But now that it has been signed into law, its statute form is just 961 pages.

But because Obamacare has the same number of words no matter how you format it, word count is a more accurate way of calculating its length.

Just how long is 2,163,744 words?...

By our count the King James Version of the Bible contains 830,314 words.4 That makes Obamacare regulations two and a half times as long as the Bible! If you add the text of the Obamacare statutes to its regulations, they are together three times as long as the Bible!
People have been reading the bible for 1900 years and they still can't figure it out, what chance do we have with Obamacare.

2,163,744 words but they forgot these few. "Congress shall make no law..."

Or since we are talking about the Bible, let me close on these words. "I am the Lord thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt not have strange gods before me." Government is a strange god.

  1. I'm afraid we've become the 21st Century version of the Roman Empire- troops everywhere but decadent at home.

  2. Mr Archbold, this comparison won't make any effect on B.O. as he can't relate to the bible.

    You may want to rewrite the article substituting for the Koran.
