Read It And Weep

Nancy Pelosi, then House Speaker, reportedly urged quick passage of ObamaCare legislation so that members could then read it to learn what it contained. 

Page counts range from 906 pages to 3,256 pages.  To date, regulations issued under ObamaCare legislation run around 20,000 pages as of early March, according to Senator Minority Leader McConnell’s office.

Now, three years later, members of Congress and their staffs have got around to reading the ObamaCare legislation.  As the substantial increases in insurance premiums become known, they are protesting mightily the requirement that they, like ordinary tax-paying citizens, be subject to ObamaCare.
