In a stunning turnabout of affairs, the Obama Administration announced they were bowing to the recent Obamacare decision by the Supreme Court and declaring their signature piece of legislation Unconstitutional.
A senior administration official stated "look, it's not a tax. We have been clear on that. If Chief Justice Roberts says the only way Obamacare is constitutional is through our power of taxation then darn it, we must bow to the inevitable. We will take steps to de-implement as soon as we redo the entire suite of campaign commercials."
Debbie Wassermann-Schultz chimed in with her pay-no-attention-to-the-girl-behind-the-curtain moment, pleading that it isn't a tax and "we're only using the IRS because it is easiest for them to administer the tax, uh, the mandate. I said mandate. The tax is a mandate."
Nancy Pelosi issued such a strident denial that Obamacare uses a tax, we heard her face cracked from the strain and she is back in her plastic surgeon's shop for emergency warranty work.
A spokesman from the tax firm of I&S Cube whose stock shot through the roof on the heels of the ruling said "of course it is a tax. The only way they can now do this legally is to develop a new tax form, charge every man, woman, and child the tax, but then let them claim a deductible supported by their health insurance premiums." Separately, he confided that the premium payment had better be posted in your checking account for when the IRS comes snooping. Failing to do so will result in the interest and penalty charges for which the IRS is famous. "You're darned tootin' it is a tax and we couldn't be more happy."
There is a rumor afloat that the Circus of the Sun is developing a new stage routine based upon the various pretzel shapes being demonstrated by administration spokespersons and members of the DemocRAT Party.

This just in: Jay Carney announces the decision to pull Obamacare and states it is entirely the fault of George Bush for appointing Roberts to the Court.
thanks for the inspiration
Its a tax or its unconstitutional.
The DNC feels Ocare is illegal.
Let them run with this “it’s not a tax” mantra for a while then bring it back to court and rule the entire thing unconstitutional because it’s not a tax. Then blame the dems for killing it. This should confuse anger the crap out of the lefty voters at what their leadership did. Maybe enough for them to stay home in November.
Yes, I know that it won’t happen in the real world because too many in Washington are in on this socialist Utopia scam, GOP included.
