Obama Admin Releases 700 Pages Of Obamacare Regulations

If you recall, back in December 2012, the Obama administration dumped 13,000 new regulations on the government and the marketplace that had been approved since May 2012. Obviously that caused quite a panic, so much that the Internal Revenue Service cannot process my taxes because "they are not ready to deal with certain forms." Friday afternoon backed the Obamacare truck up again and dumped another 700 pages of rules to implement portions of the Affordable Care Act. What may surprise many is that out of the 700 pages, these only cover a mere four rules!

The Hill reports,

The four rules, which are scheduled for publication in mid-March, finalize both major and minor parts of the healthcare reform law that Congress passed in 2010.

Three of the regulations are final and roll out the multistate healthcare exchanges and reforms to the insurance market, including provisions to encourage cost-sharing, stabilize health insurance premiums and prevent providers from denying coverage.

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) said the rules would “help to ensure that every American has access to high-quality, affordable health insurance.”

The rules will become effective on May 11, and HHS will take comments on an interim final regulation regarding cost-savings programs and government risk pooling for 60 days after those rules are published.

The other rule is a proposal to implement the Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP), making it effective on Jan. 1, 2015.

For those wondering SHOPs are said to be integrated into state insurance exchanges as a service to small businesses. No doubt they will end up being a thorn in the side of small business. These are supposed to provide one stop payments for business owners rather than making multiple payments to multiple insurance plans.

This monstrosity continues to grow years after it was signed into law and I'm doubtful that we have seen the last of increased regulations by the Federal government. Which brings me to ask, "Where in the world are the Republicans in South Carolina? When are they going to nullify Obamacare for SC? Get on it!"

However, there is a funny side to all of this. Long time Democrat political strategist Donna Brazile tweeted what Twitchy referred to as the funniest Tweet of the day. She was distraught on why her health care premium just went up. Seriously, take a look for yourself.

Perhaps she missed the part about passing the bill to find out what is in it. As I said, we'll be looking years down the road finding out all sorts of things that are in this monster. It's time we had some real statesmen in Washington and the States that are armed to slay the dragon and restore some sanity to healthcare.
