    Republican hyperbole is already in overdrive. "Largest tax increase in history" "$500 billion tax increase"

    Here is what Justice Roberts said..

    [IThe Federal Government does not have the power to order people to buy health insurance. Section 5000A would therefore be unconstitutional if read as a command. The Federal Government does have the power to impose a tax on those without health insurance. Section 5000A is therefore constitutional, because it can reasonably be read as a tax.] [/I]

    What is considered a tax is the penalty for those who do not have health insurance..........How do Republicans spin that into the largest tax increase in history?

    Tax increase. The most loaded words for the present GOP. So they throw it at anything they do not like. And in this case, they are going completely looney tunes.

    Because it *IS* the largest tax increase in US history.

    Why do they say that Alaska is the largest state by territory? Because it *is* the largest state by territory, duh.

    IF the Republicans win simple majorities in November, then can repeal this tax bill.


    Easy peasy, lemon squeazy.

    Good gosh it doesn't take a crystal ball to figure it out. Yes, this is going to be a huge tax on all the american citizens. This obamacare will be the ruinnation of jobs, and finances for people. You will be owned by the gov't and anything you make will go to them. Big gov't wants your money.....duh.

    Right wingers are brainwashed idiots that don't have the mental capabilities to understand facts, nor do they care.
    Their stupidity limits them to only understanding simple catch phrases like "Obamatax"

    Saying it does not make it so

    Given the small percentage of people who would choose not to have health insurance, and the $250 penalty....how do you spin that into the largest tax increase in history?

    Show me your numbers
