Skip to comments.Romney adviser: Health care not a tax ("Etch a Sketch" Adviser is back)
Posted on 07/02/2012 9:07:20 AM PDT by nhwingut
While Congressional Republicans have seized on the Supreme Courts ruling that President Obamas health care overhaul is constitutional as a tax, presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romneys top campaign strategist undercut that line of argument Monday, saying that the governor agrees with Mr. Obama that the law is not a tax.
The governor has consistently described the mandate in Massachusetts as a penalty, Eric Fehrnstrom, Mr. Romneys strategist, said on MSNBC. The governor disagreed with the ruling of the court; he agreed with the dissent that was written by Justice Scalia, which clearly states the mandate was not a tax.

Romney should not waste even a NY Minute to send in TRUMP to do the honors right into this guy’s face.
What does one expect for the GOP lemmings nominating the man behind RomneyCare and the grandfather of ObamaCare?
Taxes use to be for things you did, like a pistol at a holdup, now thanks to Roberts its also for things that you don’t do, like a shotgun. Romney needs to say, “ Tomorrow, Republicans in Congress will pass a law which says that NO PERSON WILL BE TAXED FOR THINGS HE DOESN’T DO.”
Romney: A true blue leftest at heart. I wonder how much else he fakes.
Author of ObamaCARE to Sen. Kennedy:
I may always be to the Left of you, Ted,
but I bet you $10,000 that my Legions can
fool anyone and sell me as a conservative anytime
enough money flows.
Obviously this isn’t so simple. If you side with Scalia and the dissent, it isn’t a tax.
That makes it unconstitutional. However, politically it works best to say it’s been declared a tax. But if you do that it’s also constitutional according to most people.
Because misChief inJustice John Robs US was experiencing seizure symptoms in writing his opinion now the whole Obamascam scheme is now just one big goat cluster copulation.

Which makes Roberts’ decision odd, assuming he actually knows anything about the constitution, which I am sure he does.
HA! HA! HA!
In a just world, after BO wins re-election over the feckless Mitt and his ilk, BO will tax the likes of Bill Kristol, Fred Barnes and Charles Krauthammer down to their last thin dime.
They will have richly deserved it after foisting another flop of a candidate on the GOP.
Assessed by the Federal government.
Punitive action if not paid.
Whether you actually use the service or not, you are still held liable, once the assessment is made.
Regardless of how capricious the assignment of an assessment may be, until repealed, the payment demanded remains an enforcable lien in the eyes of the law.
Has all the characteristics of a tax - If it looks like one, walks like one, quacks like one, must be one.
Just like the famous definition of a duck.
Roberts was bought off...pure and simple ...Chicago style...bought off. “You have a nice family there judge. Shame if anything happened to it.” JMHO
One tiny silver lining in the SCOTUS decision was deeming it a tax. A golden Hammer for Romney to beat Obama about the head and neck daily until electiopn day and the feckless pussy puts it back on the shelf and calls a truce.
Why do we even try with milquetoast gutless weasels running the damned show?
Just like McLame, his prize was the nomination - NOT the election.
Just like McLame, he will find a way to blow it so he doesn’t have to make the decisions.
Just like McLame, he will blame the Conservatives who didn’t hold their collective noses and vote for him.
And the Conservatives will shake their collective heads and vow to do better next time. When the Republicrats offer up a Bush or some other RINO.
This moron single-handedly killed”it’s a tax” as an issue. It’s dead as a door nail. What an amazing idiot.
Still throwing those life preservers are ya.
