Wait! That's just the cover... here's the rest of it:

 “Behold my display of the 2013 Federal Register, It contains over 80,000 pages of new rules, regulations, and notices all written and passed by unelected bureaucrats. The small stack of papers on top of the display are the laws passed by elected members of Congress and signed into law by the president.”

As they say, a picture is worth 1000 words.

Washington set a new record in 2013 by issuing final rules consuming 26,417 pages in the Federal Register. 

The Federal Register finished 2013 at 79,311 pages, the fourth highest total in history. That didn't match President Obama's 2010 all-time record of 81,405 pages. But Mr. Obama can console himself by noting that of the five highest Federal Register page counts, four have occurred on his watch. The other was 79,435 pages under President  Bush in 2008.


Ah... Bureaucracy, or is that Bureaucrazy?
