The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has launched “Health Care Regulatory Madness,” an NCAAA-styled online vote meant to shed light on the impact the healthcare reform law — and accompanying scores of new federal regulations — is having on businesses.
“So far, there are 20,000 pages of health care law regulations — enough to publish War and Peace 14 times or cover the length of 61 football fields,” the Chamber said in a statement announcing the game. “And many more regulations are in the pipeline.”
The possible Cinderella: an eight-seeded rule involving deduction limits on Health Savings Accounts.
Those wishing to participate have until 11:59 p.m. on March 31 to get their votes in. Results will be announced the following day.
