For kicks, I thought it would be interesting to compare it’s length with the approximate lengths of some of the most world-changing documents ever written:
- The King James Bible – 1888 (2 pages shorter than the healthcare bill and you burn forever if you screw this up)
- The Qu’ran – 250 (only 250 pages to find out how to convert the world to Islam)
- The U.S. Constitution – 150 (less than 1/10th as long as the healthcare bill, but at least as important)
- Magna Carta – 10 (the length of a mere subclause in the healthcare bill)
- War and Peace – 1296 (a fictional account of Russian Revolution five Russian families in the age of Napolean and beyond is just 2/3rds the size of Obamacare)
- The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire – 1312 (a 900 year history of the greatest empire is 600 pages shorter than the Democrat’s healthcare bill)
A note about methodology: For some of the older documents I could find only the estimated word counts. In those cases I assumed that one page = 300 words. So, for example, I found that there are 75,000 words in the Qu’ran. I divided this number by 300 to obtain the number of pages you see above, 250.
