Obama's 80 Million Man-Hour Mess

The House Committee on Ways and Means has taken the time to compile an estimate of the amount of hours necessary to implement Obama's healthcare bill. The total came to just under 80 million hours. 

Now let's put aside this absurd, border-line-hilarious amount of work that it will take to implement the legislation. Let's forget that we're going to be inundating a beleaguered healthcare system with millions of new patients without adding a single new doctor. Let's get to the root of the matter.

 Just who, I ask, will this laughably morbid span of man-hours fall on?

Small businesses. 

This pile of work will land where the President has always aimed it to land. Right in the laps of America's middle class. There is no denying that Obamacare itself is a ponderous pile of paper that most of America has not even begun to read. But the pile is growing.

According to a Washington Examiner article, "Obamacare has resulted in thousands of pages in IRS and Treasury rules including 17 regulations, 5 revenue procedures, 2 revenue rulings, and 14 Treasury decisions". When it comes to Obamacare, small business beware.
