    OMB director undercuts legal case for Obamacare

    Sounds like they are trying to sink their own case.

    It would be a GREAT political move to crush obamacare now b4 big 0 replacement takes his Oath.

    It would force the reps to drop the blather about removing it and force them to make serious promises about UE and the economy.

    It's brilliant.

    or

    he doesn't want jail time for perjury.

    yeah, I'm going with that.

    Tax, user fee's, penalty fee's, does it really matter what its is called? If the government passes a law or regulation that takes money from private entities (business or people) then it should be called a tax, not a fee.

    that makes sense, if it had anything to do with obamacare.

    The fine is for not getting insurance of signing up for obamacare.

    It's Unconstitutional and nothing short of tyranny.

    Technically speaking, it's a tax, but we all know it's really a fee/fine in practice, that manifests itself as an additional tax.

    What it actually 'is' isn't really in question. But they will defend it in court any way that's logical to the specific claims made against it on a per-litigation basis. That really shouldn't be shocking, it should be expected.
