"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - President Ronald Reagan

It's a tax and let Pres BO & Dems defend that now!
The headline is that the Supreme
Court upheld BO-Care. In fact, the decision is a bit more complex than
Chief Justice Roberts told us that
the mandate was unconstitutional under the commerce clause. This is good
because it respects the constitution.
He also said that BO-Care was
constitutional as a "tax". Again, he is correctly confirming that the Congress
can tax and spend.
At the end of the day, this is the
worst political outcome for Pres BO & Dems.
"STEPHANOPOULOS: That may be, but
it’s still a tax increase.
OBAMA: No. That’s not true, George. 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."
Question: Was he ignorant or deceptive. I can not read Pres BO's mind but
he does not win either way.
Second, Pres BO will now have to ask Congress for a "tax" to pay for
BO-Care. He owns the Obama Care tax that we were told did not exist!
