Chief Justice John Roberts said the individual mandate is Constitutional as a tax.
Jay Carney says it’s not a tax, it’s a penalty.
Republicans say it’s a tax.
Rep. Nancy Pelosi says it’s a ta…penalty.
Rush Limbaugh says it’s the biggest tax increase in the history of history.
Obama says it’s just a penalty that will only affect 1 percent of the population.
I say who gives a crap what it’s called.
It’s still the use of force to tell all American citizens to buy something or go to jail.
That should be the focus. Americans should be outraged that any member of Congress would dare to tell them they had to engage in commerce or feel the full weight of the government fall upon them.
That fact should not be lost in this game of political semantics.
I saw this the other day and thought about it. It’s spot on:
The government is telling you to buy something, or else. What is it going to take for people to see the tyranny of that?
