    Remember when he insisted it is not a tax?

    Did any intelligent citizen actually believe him when he said it wasn't a tax?

    Only an idiot would say that using a definition of a word to clarify a point of argument is "stretching"

    The legislation does not refer to it as a tax, even though it sort of passes the "duck test" of what a tax is.

    But since legislativly it is not a tax (ha!) and the democrats insisted all along it was not a tax (ha ha!) the courts will probably defer to the legislated intent.

    Or not

    The people who will benefit from all of this don't pay taxes to begin with so why should they care, its a win win for them.

    Just remember what the mouth piece pelosi said and feel comfort "”It’s like the back of the refrigerator. You see all these wires and the rest. All you need to know is, you open the door. The light goes on".

    0bama gets his cake and eats it too. The last guy that tried that lost his head. The IRS is collecting a penalty, which falls outside its legislative function. A court action is legitimate and warranted.

    Which also lays to waste the lie that the 16,000 new IRS agents are for anything other than enforcement of ObamaCare

    I'm not sure that he has said anything that was purely truthful since he entered office. Maybe not before, either.

    The Big 0 cannot tell a truth. He is always trying to sell something and always leaving out or twisting the facts that will expose the fullness of any issue.

    Wow you guys are slow on the uptake.

    Everything he is doing and the way he does it was all predicted over and over by many on the right leading up to the election. But we were simply called racists and shouted down.

    Obama is nothing more than a Chicago Gangster wanna be thug with 0 qualifications for the job other than he speaks well from a teleprompter and lies like a hooker with no legs.

    I said it over and over during the election. I could care less about his color my problem is he is a liar and a Marxists who does not like America the way it is.

    What part of "were about to fundementally change AMerica" did you people not get? What part of "Spread the wealth" was to hard to grasp? What Part of “I happen to be a proponent of a single payer universal health care program.” DID YOU NOT GET DAMN IT~~~~!!!!!!

    Why did anyone buy the lies he sold during the Campaign, are you all that dense or did most of you just vote for him because he was black? Or cool? Or good looking?

    sad.
