That's not what the SCOTUS said it was?
"It's a penalty because you have a choice," Carney said. "You don't have a choice to pay your taxes, right? You have a choice to buy -- if you can afford health insurance. So if you don't buy it, and you can afford it, it is an irresponsible thing to do to ask the rest of America's taxpayers to pay for your care when you go to the emergency room. So your choice is to purchase healthcare reform or a penalty will be administered."

He has to say its a penalty. He cannot admit that his boss is the one who signed in to law what some are calling the largest tax increase in our country's history. A tax increase that will impact those who make under $250,00 in spite of his boss's campaign promise that he would not increase taxes, and promised that Obamacare was not a tax.

The courts ruled it a tax, the administrator can :notlistening: all they want, but its now defined as a tax.

Don't care what you call it.
I'm not paying it.

They can have the money when they pry it
from my cold dead hands.

The Democrats will be screaming, "It's not a tax!!!", till the cows come home.

Whatever ran through Roberts' mind in every other respect, he at least handed the GOP a gift in this one regard.

Carney is such a ho'.
He should remember that the SC threw out the "penalty", and left only the "tax".
John Roberts should roast in a very warm place.

One could choose not to work enough to pay taxes. That would be a choice, wouldn't it? Get the Earned Income Tax Credit, Medicaid and Food Stamps as well.

If it's not a tax, then Justice Roberts says it ain't constitutional. If it is a tax, it can be repealed under Reconciliation Rules (no filibuster allowed).
