So, Obama says it isn’t. Roberts says it is. The only thing I can think of is…Wow. What a mess.
What say you now oh brilliant one…the Supreme Court has deemed it a tax under the Constitution….oh yah, I forgot…your smarter than everyone else…at least that’s what your far left liberal government tit suckers want us to believe…read the U.S. Constitution and learn something about the country you live in…we don’t live in Africa and we’re not Moos-lums….we are Americans….go back to your liberal academia…that’s where liberal dreamers belong..not in the real world
What’s funny about his comments is that “the haves” have been “carrying the burdens” of the have-nots in this country for decades.
How is that fair? How is it fair that I don’t have cable or air conditioning–I’ve determined that they aren’t priorities and I can’t afford them–yet people on the government dole have these luxuries and more. I’ve had to cut my grocery list down to the “must-haves” yet people on food stamps get to eat steak? I can’t even remember the last time I bought a steak.
How are these injustices compensated?
Obama doesn’t say this isn’t a “tax”; he says it isn’t a “tax increase”. In many ways, this is a true statement. It is only a “tax increase” if you are wealthy enough to have health insurance and you choose not to have it. People who cannot afford it are exempt from these taxes. If you have health insurance, you don’t pay a tax for it. If don’t have insurance and you get hurt and go to the hospital, it only makes sense that you pay for it somehow (i.e. through taxes). It is only a tax increase for people who can afford health insurance but choose not to carry it, and it is similar to a tax on cigarettes. If you make unhealthy decisions, you pay for it. If you make healthy decisions, you don’t get taxed. In reality, most people who can afford it, already carry it.
