When Barack Obama says it isn’t! The Obamacare mandate has been deemed constitutional according to the majority opinion of the Supreme Court of the United States in a 5-4 ruling. However, not in accordance with the Commerce Clause, as the bill was initially sold to the American people. The mandate has only survived due to being upheld as a tax, never mentioned as such in all 2200 pages of the PPACA Law. The Obama Administration has just pulled off one of the most stupendous shell games ever – bait and switch sound familiar?
The single largest tax increase in history has just been hoisted upon the American people, right under our collective noses. The entire proposition of national health care rests upon this “mandate”, which was never described as a tax. As a matter of fact, Barack Obama and his able henchmen(women) proclaimed at the time that it was not:
In the Blaze’s short research we have uncovered three high profile, on-the-record declarations from the Administration strongly repudiating the notion of the Individual Mandate as a tax.
1. The White House Budget Director, Jeffrey Zients: “No.”
2. Health & Human Services Secretary Sebelius: “[The IndividualMandate] is not per-say a tax.”
3. The President: “I absolutely reject that notion [mandate is a tax].”
Please watch the now extraordinarily controversial comments
The American people do not like to be snookered. The populace will take matters into their own hands on 11/6/12 and the nation will provide their own opinion.
