Lost in the Sprawl of Infinite Bureaucracy - Hit & Run : Reason Magazine

Lost in the Sprawl of Infinite Bureaucracy - Hit & Run : Reason Magazine: In the classic Star Trek episode “A Wolf in the Fold,” a malevolent alien presence take’s over the Enterprise’s computer, wreaking havoc aboard the ship. Commander Spock eventually defeats the presence by commanding the computer to calculate pi to the final digit. Last week, the Congressional Research Service attempted what turned out to be a similarly endless task—estimating the number of new bureaucratic entities created by ObamaCare—and reported that it, too, could not compute. From Politico:

Don’t bother trying to count up the number of agencies, boards and commissions created under the new health care law. Estimating the number is “impossible,” a recent Congressional Research Service report says, and a true count “unknowable.”
