These people are unbelievable. After the Supreme Court upheld the dreaded Obamacare mandate because it’s a TAX, Team Obama continues to deny it is a tax. Yesterday Jay Carney told reporters it’s a penalty, not a tax. Now the Obama Truth Team is saying the same thing.
I’d love to take a moment to savor yesterday’s Supreme Court decision, but we don’t have time.
Already, Mitt Romney and Republicans are out with outright falsehoods about Obamacare — their favorite distortion being that this is somehow a broad tax on the middle class. In reality, this is all about personal responsibility — and the “tax” they are trying to scare everyone about is actually a penalty for the 1 percent of people who can afford insurance but still choose not to buy it, leaving the rest of us to pay for their health care when they head to the emergency room.
Just like they did when the bill was before Congress, Republicans are playing fast and loose with the truth, making up scary consequences to keep you from knowing all the good things Obamacare does. They’re not telling the truth about what this reform means for millions of middle-class Americans, so I need you to help get the facts out there.
There’s more BS where that came from, if you feel that you haven’t been lied to enough lately.
I have an idea, how about all of us who voluntarily pay our own health insurance premiums just stop? Why should we continue to be responsible and pay for insurance while we’re healthy? We can pay the tax, or penalty, or whatever they want to call it, and wait to buy health insurance when we get sick or hurt. How will that work out?
