Agreement is almost universal that the new healthcare law is overcomplicated. And it was made that way on purpose to prevent lawmakers from changing it, says Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa.

“Obamacare is today’s Gordian knot,” he writes on Politico. “The law was drafted to be incredibly difficult for lawmakers to unravel. When then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, President Barack Obama, and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid drafted Obamacare, they quietly included provisions that automatically spend $105.5 billion over the next 10 years to implement the law.”

Some of the automatic funding continues forever, King notes.

“Unprecedented in scope, these self-enacting provisions grant Obamacare its own self-contained, automatic money machine. These are the resources that fertilize this malignant tumor, which is extending its roots into every aspect of our health care system.”
