  •  7 feet high. How many words on a page? (6+ / 0-)

    It is a big bill but stack 800 book pages up and it is not all that high.
    How can the stack be that much higher than the whole bill? Anything that might be a regulation is on it's own page and broken up?  (So that the same regulation gets its own page for every situation/condition it covers)
    I would really like to know how they get such a stack
    Ridiculing them back might be a tool

    but we are not helping by having a 23 page application for those who do it on paper. Really. That isn't right wing meme... it was on Melissa Harris Parry a couple weeks ago. The guy defending it was explaining it was very simple on line but on paper you have to cover all thew situations and no one has to fill out all thee pages. (like "If Yes, continue. If No got to section VII)
    I get it, but oh my, that will be bad, bad, bad pr. A required program with a 23 page application?
    At one word per page they can stack that pretty high

    Funny that congress will be sabotaging their own insurance coverage. Remember that members of congress and their staff will all be going on their state  exchange for health care, they will no longer be covered by the  Federal Employees Health Benefits Plan.  
    Some republican senator offered it as an amendment to put Dems in an awkward situation when they voted against it. It passed and was in final bill.

    So when they say Americans will lose their insurance and be forced to get Obamacare it is true only for themselves...
