Maxine Waters: ‘I have not decided’ whether or not to call Obamacare mandate ‘a tax’ [AUDIO]
By Nicholas Ballasy | The Daily Caller – 14 hrs ago

**SNIP**

“What I have not decided is whether or not it’s better to call it a tax or a mandate. What I have decided is it’s absolutely necessary that it be paid for, that if we’re going to cover all of these preexisting conditions that I just alluded to, we have to have the income by which to do it and so I have not decided that one may be better than the other,” she told TheDC. “I’m going to think about that and I’m going to review and perhaps I’ll have a different opinion on it later on but right now I’m just happy.”

**SNIP**

“I don’t want us to start projecting out and start to talk about what’s going to happen in the future,” Waters responded. “The first thing we must know and understand is that this independent, very, high positioned branch of government will make their decision based on the deliberations that they’re involved in, based on their experiences, based on their beliefs and we cannot anticipate what they’re decisions are going to be.”

Most people have forgotten, but the original “secret” plan to fund Obamacare was a VAT. Pelosi and Reid thought that they would be able to get it through easily after the 2010 elections, but they did not count on the big Republican gains that stopped it in its tracks. That’s why they delayed getting a House budget passed until the last minute that year.

Maxine is not “mad” or “mistaken.”

Maxine is a new animal on the US political scene, and that is a fact.

Maxine is a liberal fascist.

Obamacare is, to a liberal fascist, the quintessential social engiineering tool, the tool which will be used to invade every facit of life of Americans and shape them for the Utopia define by liberal fascism. Therefore Obamacare will be whatever Maxine wants to call it , so that people will lay down and accept the new liberal fascist “reality.”

Our whole nation is about to be subjected to warfare perpetrated on a hitherto free people. A curtain of the greatest pall is now descending on America , and it will hang from the batty eaves of the house that Maxine and Obama built.Say good bye to privacy, say goodbye to choosing whether you have a gun in your home, for it is a health risk, and if you exercise your second amendment rights? It will cost A LOT more for your health care.

Maxine is a vile snake, a blot on the intent of the founding fathers and the constitution. She and those like her are our enemies, full stop.

Now lets get rid of Maxine and all of her barking, breying running dogs.De-elect the buggers full stop.

Good read:

Exactly, us mere mortals should not be concerned, the political demi-gods are far superior.

I hope Pelosi has her new condo on Alcatraz ready to move in, and the security staff in place, all tours suspended indefinitely. All these socialists are just now beginning to feel the need for “impregnable fortresses’ because for some reason many Americans are getting pissed off, personally I blame their misguided ideology.

We ABSOLUTELY MUST non stop hammer away at them that Obamacare is a TAX.

They know the implications, they are like the martians hearing old country western yodeling when they hear “Its a tax” right now, seriously.

Its a chink in their armor and we have it in our crosshairs, even the MSM is on the “Its a tax” bandwagon, we must stay hot on this.

Did the court as a whole determine it was a tax or was that something Roberts threw in as his own personal opinion so he could ram it thru???

The Obama crew is still saying it is not a tax...

Looks like they greased a pig and are sittin' back laughing watching us trying to get ahold of it...

Correct. Taxes are mandated correct. If not I will CHOOSE to not pay them. This argument over verbage is why I hold most of these jackwagons in contempt. I did not have sex with that woman, I didn’t inhale, is just a sad reflection of most of society. Its not a baby, I oppose abortion but support choice??? Teachers can’t fix whats wrong with the kiddo’s, poor school performance is because of a lack of funding. Thank God 50 years ago the nuns that taught us took it as a challenge to teach. No kid was too flawed to not learn basic skills. Foodstamps grow the economy, I need some to let me out of my mortgage, student loans, debt, blah blah blah. As Col Potter said on Mash “Horsehockey”. I don’t care if Mitt is LDS, or a progressive republican I want Obama OUT! Then perhaps we can get him to toe the line by actively running a CONSERVATIVE immediately after the election. If Mitt turns out to be the fraud some here think he is then we toss his butt out in 2016. First things first.

Most elections are won and lost on the tax issue.

The election is now ours to win.

Keep our eyes on the ball. Keep our eyes on Obama.

Maxine Waters: ‘I have not decided’ whether or not to call Obamacare mandate ‘a tax’
Don't tax your little brain over it(pun intended). You could call it a Rutabaga and it would make zero difference in your district since none of your constituents actually PAY TAXES in the first place.

ps: Kindly STOP calling the tax money you and your FedGov cronies steal from working Americans "Income". Income is something one earns and none of you earn a dam thing.

While I think Roberts made the wrong (and foolish) legal decision, writing it up as a tax and having the liberal judges sign it sets up a lot of different legal issues in my mind. The Democrats can try to call it anything they want, but now they will have to content with it as a tax and everything that implies.
