    SNIP:
    That didn’t take long.
    After the Supreme Court confirmed yesterday that Obamacare is really just a ‘big f***ing tax’ the Obama Truth Team is already backing away from the ruling. Yesterday it was a tax. Today’s it’s not.


    Friend –

    I’d love to take a moment to savor yesterday’s Supreme Court decision, but we don’t have time.

    Already, Mitt Romney and Republicans are out with outright falsehoods about Obamacare — their favorite distortion being that this is somehow a broad tax on the middle class. In reality, this is all about personal responsibility — and the “tax” they are trying to scare everyone about is actually a penalty for the 1 percent of people who can afford insurance but still choose not to buy it, leaving the rest of us to pay for their health care when they head to the emergency room.

    Just like they did when the bill was before Congress, Republicans are playing fast and loose with the truth, making up scary consequences to keep you from knowing all the good things Obamacare does. They’re not telling the truth about what this reform means for millions of middle-class Americans, so I need you to help get the facts out there.

    the rest at..

    It's a tax. The SC said so.

    When the Republicans roll it back in January, perhaps the butthurt Leftists can get the Supremes to decide.


    LOL

    I see they are using the power of words again to make you a believer in this isssue. If you believe anything they are saying you are being fooled. Its a tax, and going to cost all of us. They are forcing people to buy insurance even if you can't afford it, and if you don't the irs comes after you and if you don't pay the penalty, its jail. Your liberaty and freedoms have been taken with this obamacare. Fact.

    i don't know... it was a penalty when romney enacted it.

    :thup:

    but i'm guessing you haven't read the decision, so of course you should repeat what the rightwingnut blogosphere says.

    congrats for supporting the wackos, though. :thup:

    reality: it is the job of the supreme court to uphold legislation on any possible constitutional basis.

    i thought you hated activist judges. you really should complain to scalia about that whole activist thing.

    Hey Staph and all of you idiots supporting the presently failed health care system in the US.

    I, and at least half the rest of the voting Americans, do not care what you call it. I would like to see a system here where over 750,000 American families a year are not going to be bankrupted by an illness or an accident. I would like to see our health stastics equal to other industrial nations, instead of being similiar to third world nations.

    Tax? Penalty? Who cares. Fix a failing system before it crashes completely. It is not like we don't have working models in other nations that are far more successful than what we have at present.

    I noticed the letter did not mention all the other taxes in the Health Care Bill.
