Department of Health and Human Services Released 1,296 Pages of Regulations Before the Holiday Weekend


The timing of the news release is well calculated by the Obama administration, which has often used holidays as an opportunity to dump dense regulatory changes when most reporters and Americans are focused on their holiday plans.

The release came at 4:15 p.m. while Americans looked forward to the July Fourth holiday weekend; the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released 1,296 pages of new regulations dealing with payment rates to doctors and hospitals.

Considering this is not the first time the Obama administration has used a holiday to sneak a news release out, one must wonder what the Obama administration is trying to hide.
