The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) free-trade deal is 5,544 pages long – that’s longer than both Obamacare and Sen. Marco Rubio’s (R-FL) failed “Gang of Eight” immigration bill.

Rubio’s immigration bill – which never cleared Congress – was just under 1,200 pages long, weighed roughly 24 pounds and was criticized for its large size and complexity.

Under that same measure, the 5,000-plus pages of the TPP would weigh more than 100 pounds.

Obamacare, also known as the Affordable Care Act (ACA), was originally just under 2,000 pages long.
