ObamaCcare is now a "tax"
When the community organizer in chief was pushing to pass ObamaCare, the Democrats denied the fact that requiring Americans to obtain health insurance or pay a penalty was creating a new tax. In an interview with George Stephanopoulos which took place in September of 2009. Obama stated the following:
"The -- for us to say that you've got to take a responsibility to get health insurance is absolutely not a tax increase. What it's saying is, is that we're not going to have other people carrying your burdens for you anymore than the fact that right now everybody in America, just about, has to get auto insurance. Nobody considers that a tax increase. People say to themselves, that is a fair way to make sure that if you hit my car, that I'm not covering all the costs."
Now let's flash to summer 2010 when ObamaCare is being challenged by more than 20 states in the courts. The Obama Administration needs and excuse for the law forcing people to buy health insurance, and they've found one. Now, suddenly, it's a TAX! That's tight, the health care mandate is actually a TAX and the government's "power to lay and collect taxes" is all the authorization they need! Amazing how the tune changes when they are backed up against the wall and are forced to defend the law based on our Constitution and not Obama logic. It's hard keeping up with all of Obamas lies from one month to the next. All he does is lie. He is an absolute failure and will only serve one term.
