Compliance with ObamaCare Estimated at 80 Million Man-hours | Tax Foundation

According to the Committee on Ways and Means and the IRS, compliance with the new healthcare law will take 80 million man-hours per year.  Perhaps that sounds like a successful jobs program, as it will keep 40,000 people fully employed, filling out paperwork and sorting through a confounding pile of government regulations.  Only problem is, that work is entirely wasteful and creates zero wealth for America as a whole.  It would be better for America and for the 40,000 workers to do something useful, like build the empire state building 11 times over, to use the Ways and Means example.
