Now we have confirmed what the Obama administration claimed was not a tax declared a tax by the Supreme Court. Remember how Barack Obama went on national television with George Stephanopoulos where he was fighting George tooth and nail to claim that the the health care law was not a tax.
Stephanopoulos took issue with the mandate which forces Americans to purchase health insurance, or be fined as much as $900. “How is that not a tax?”
“A responsibility to get health insurance is not a tax increase,” Obama said.
Stephanopoulos then tells Obama that he looked up the definition of “tax” in Merriam Webster’s dictionary.
“The fact that you looked up… the definition of tax increase indicates that you’re stretching a little bit right now,” Obama responded.
Well now, the fact that he looked up the definition tells us that he was making sure he understood what a tax is, not stretching anything.
I’m no friend of either Obama or Stephy, but George was right on this one. It is a tax. The Supreme Court has basically said that Obama and all of his minions who claimed it was not a tax, have lied to us. The ruling today is nothing more than a declaration of the Democrats purportrating a fraud on the American people.
Yes, your taxes will go up. They must go up because it is the law. Barack Hussein Obama lied to every American when he declared that people making less than $250,000 will not see a tax increase. Yes they will and it will be in the form of either a tax penalty to the government or a tax paid to a health insurance provider.
