Sometimes it's a tax, sometimes it isn't
Remember that? Taking money by force of law for public goods are not a tax. Emphatically not.
"I absolutely reject that notion."
Now, that notion is no longer rejected. Rather, it's the basis for a motion to dismiss a Florida lawsuit. Now it's a tax again because they have the power to tax but the power to compel the purchase of goods and services is much more circumspect. That this is now a tax either requires Obama to direct the DOJ to drop the motion or the MSM to note this is a plain violation of his pledge not to raise taxes on the middle class. I'm not holding my breath for either one.
