Tax By Any Other Name

"The Affordable Care Act's requirement that certain individuals pay a financial penalty for not obtaining health insurance may reasonably be characterized as a tax."
 - Chief Justice Roberts, June 28, 2012

Obama got the "Affordable" Care Act through by calling it a penalty and not a tax. Lawyers went into the Supreme Court and argued it as a tax, and that's why we're dealing with this today.

This isn't rocket science, ladies and gentlemen. Call a spade a spade!


  1. On the plus side, if the Republicans win a simple majority in the Senate this November, they can repeal it through the reconciliation process, since the mandate is now a "Tax," it's a tax bill, and can be altered with just 51 votes instead of 60.

  2. Hi Savannah! I just found your blog from your posts on Twitter and I love it!! I'm from Chicago so I see firsthand the consistent failures of liberal politics. You gained a new follower, and I'm excited to read future blog posts!
