Another Broken Health Care Promise: Growing Government

After Dems Insisted The Health Care Law “Does Not Increase Government,” Non-Partisan Experts Say There Is So Much Expansion The Exact Number Of New Government Entities Is “Unknowable”

The Original Sale

SEN. MAX BAUCUS (D-MT): “This Bill Does Not Increase Government.” (Sen. Baucus, Floor Remarks, 12/9/09)

CRS: “Impossible” To Estimate The Number Of New Government Boards, Agencies, & Commissions Created Under The Health Care Law

“Don’t Bother Trying To Count Up The Number Of Agencies, Boards And Commissions Created Under The New Health Care Law. Estimating The Number Is ‘Impossible,’ A Recent Congressional Research Service Report Says, And A True Count ‘Unknowable.’” (“Health Reform’s Bureaucratic Spawn,” Politico, 8/3/10)

“‘Although Some Observers Have Asserted That PPACA Will Result In A Precise Number Of New Boards And Commissions,’ The CRS Document Reads, ‘The Exact Number Of New Organizations And Advisory Bodies That Will Ultimately Be Created … Is Currently Unknowable.’” (“Health Reform’s Bureaucratic Spawn,” Politico, 8/3/10)

  • “The provisions of the law that create the new entities vary dramatically in specificity. The law says a lot about some of them and a little about many, and merely mentions a few. Some have been authorized without any instructions on who is to appoint whom, when that might happen and who will pay. Those agencies created without specific appointment or appropriations procedures will have to wait indefinitely for staff and funding before they can function, according to Copeland’s report. And others could be just the opposite: One entity might not be enough and could spawn others, resulting in an ‘indeterminate number of new organizations.’” (“Health Reform’s Bureaucratic Spawn,” Politico, 8/3/10)

Tom White Says:

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
