Obama: Mandatory Health Insurance Wasn't A Tax, But Now It Is
Yet another example of the Obama's administration's CHANGE!
From Ace of Spades, citing the New York Times (July 16, 2010):
...In a brief defending ["minimal essential coverage"], the Justice Department says the requirement for people to carry insurance or pay the penalty is “a valid exercise” of Congress’s power to impose taxes.Return for a minute to these exact words from Obama, back in September 2009 when he was pushing for health-care reform:
"For us to say you have to take responsibility to get health insurance is absolutely not a tax increase."We shouldn't be surprised. After all, the electorate did vote for change. That change apparently includes changing semantics too.
America, you've been had, bad, by the scam known as Barack Hussein Obama.
