( – When asked about the 10,535 pages of final regulations that have been published in the Federal Register for implementing Obamacare, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) said Americans want to see those responsible for Obamacare to sign up for it, including President Barack Obama, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Chief Justice John Roberts, and Daniel Werfel, the acting commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service.

“What I want to know is when are we going to see the photo -- President and Michelle Obama signing up for Obamacare?” Bachmann told on Friday on Capitol Hill.

“When are we going to see the photo of [Chief Justice] John Roberts and Mrs. Roberts sign up for Obamacare?” said Bachman.  “When are going to see Kathleen Sebelius and her husband signing up for Obamacare?”

“When are we going to see the head of the IRS signing up for Obamacare?” Bachmann asked.

“That’s what the nation wants to see,” Bachmann said. “But the dirty little secret is they have no intention of signing up for Obamacare.”

Since March 2010, when President Barack Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and its companion Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act (HCERA), various federal agencies have published in the Federal Register 110 final regulations governing how Obamacare will be implemented.

These regulations add up to 10,535 pages in the Federal Register, or more than eight times as many pages as there are in the Gutenberg Bible, which has 642 two-sided leaves or 1,286 pages.
