Obama Insists: Individual Mandate Penalty is NOT NOT NOT a Tax

In this Sept. 2009 interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos, President Obama argues over and over and over that the individual mandate penalty was NOT a tax. He says it flatly and repeatedly. Then the admin. does a 180 and argued in court that is actually IS a tax. Now John Roberts and the 4 liberal Justices on the Supreme Court have decided that the law can stand because it IS a tax. We have been lied to - flatly and repeatedly.

  1. Obama was 100% telling the truth. In September 2009, the penalty was not a tax. When the Obama administration presented its arguments to the U.S. Supreme Court, the arguments referenced alternative theories of law, including the one theory that the penalty would be a tax if the Court agreed with Obama that the mandate was constitutional under the taxing clause of the Constitution that gives such power to the Congress. On June 28, 2012, the Supreme Court decided that the health care law is constitutional because the penalty is a tax, so it turns out that Obama was 100% telling the truth. It also means that Romney is 100% at odds with Obama, 100% at odds with the Supreme Court, 100% at odds with conservative Chief Justice John Roberts, 100% at odds with the law of the land, and 100% at odds with the OLD Romney who argued in favor of an individual mandate when he was governor of Massachusetts before he (Romney) did a 180 and lied flatly and repeatedly, contradicting his previous support for the Massachusetts mandate in order to persuade Republican primary voters not to vote for Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich or Ron Paul. Romney's lies fooled those GOP voters, who are now on their way to nominating yet another losing candidate for President.
