Regulation Whack-a-Mole

Jeffrey Anderson of The Weekly Standard reported the other week on a new rule concerning Obamacare (a 347-page, 118,072-word "rule".  That's one heck of a regulation)  that had been posted online for a comment period, as required by law. 

As soon as he did, though, the link went dead and Anderson could no longer find mention of the rule anywhere online.  Coincidence?  Possibly.  Switching Internet locations willy-nilly without leaving a forwarding link surely isn't "transparency", though.

Well, the mysterious vanishing document has finally reappeared here.  Just try to wade through it.  We guarantee your eyes will cross inside of 5 minutes. 

Bureaucratic legalese measured by the pound such as this undecipherable "rule", which Anderson points out by itself is 15 times longer than the Constitution, is but one example of how your health care is going to be run under the auspices of Dear Leader's minions. 

Don't get sick.

Ouch. The libertarian faces a Gordian knot!

(or maybe this is how Dear Leader is implementing the death panels he's always denying he's created?)
