Tweet Out: Actor Tweeting Every Word of 906-Page Obamacare Law

Would you ever read a 906-page law? You’d be hard pressed to find anyone who would—but actor Jake McClain [2] is, and he’s taking it to another level. On Friday, McClain began tweeting [2] through every single word of the 906-page Obamacare law, which he opposes.

McClain is using tweetpower to send an effective message.

“Folks … this will probably take a long time to do, but I decided I will read every page, word by word, of Obamacare, and tweet every word,” he tweeted last week.


The lengthy process of tweeting is six days in and McClain has currently tweeted through 27 pages of the document.

Thanks to his clever antics, he’s earned lots of press attention and today appeared on Mike Huckabee’s radio show. He’s encouraging others to join in the tweeting by using the hashtag #tweetobamacare. McClain has started using #tco at the beginning of each Obamacare tweet as well.


The process is particularly poignant since former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) famously said, “We have to pass the bill so we can find out what is in it.”

Hidden within these pages are mounds of bureaucracy and new taxes that are destroying jobs and the economy [5].

McClain, who also contributes to Breitbart.com, doesn’t anticipate finishing the daunting task anytime soon. He tweeted that he may get it done by October at a rate of four pages per day.
