In its 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court ruled that the “individual mandate” could be upheld ONLY if it is established as a congressionally-authorized “TAX.”
President Obama has solemnly and repeatedly pledged that he will in no way raise taxes on the working class, i.e. the 99%. “I can make a firm pledge – under my plan, no family making less that $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase.”
A significant portion of the $1.7 trillion dollar tax increase intended to fund Obamacare would fall of people who earn just above the poverty level of $11,800 per individual/ $24,000 for a family of four.
Does this administration really believe we are so stupid that we can be bribed, with our own money?
