Fox is haranguing Mitt Romney over this misunderstanding, but it seems everyone is confused about what Obamacare really is. Obama has lied for a couple of years that the mandate isn't a tax. That the bill has no new taxes. This is total horseshit. Because the mandate cannot be enforced it is a tax because there can be no penalty for not buying insurance. That is unconstitutional. Megan Kelly of Fox News hits the nail on the head and nails down an Obama campaign spokesman on the issue. Also, the Obama Administration Solicitor General admits to the Supreme Court in this video that the only reason they called it a penalty was to ease it's passage.
