    After saying Thursday that he agreed with the dissent on the SCOTUS decision, i.e., that it wasn't a tax,

    Romney has now, with painfully boring predictability, flip flopped AGAIN and is now saying it is a tax.

    LINK:

    Romney calls health care mandate a ‘tax,’ contradicts top aide – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs

    Apparently, conveniently, Romney is taking the position that the Supreme Court can't ever be wrong.

    (Supporters of Roe v. Wade, among others, should take comfort in that Romney endorsement of a woman's right to choose.:lol:)

    Well I guess I'd rather have a flip flopper than a flat out liar

    Just a thought, not that I want to actually defend idiots who want to tell me what to do, but perhaps he is simple saying that, if the court says the sky is orange in order to justify the fact that the FCC can tell us to eat spinach, than the sky is orange.

    Call it whatever the fuck you want. It matters not since it will be repealed if Romney wins.
