ObamaCare added 3,322 pages to the tax code

A report from the National Taxpayers Union Foundation calculates that some 3,322 pages have been added to the already ridiculously complicated tax code thanks to ObamaCare. Here's the breakdown:

3,322 pages of legal guidance for ObamaCare (or the ACA) added to IRS.gov (1,077 pages of regulations, 1,377 pages of Treasury decisions, 669 notices, 100 revenue procedures, and 12 revenue rulings). [NTUF]

As the NTUF also notes, the tax code is seven times the length of War and Peace. Even the IRS agrees it's too complex.
