RE: Remember, though, that he agreed with the majority that the Feds do not have the power to force people to buy insurance...
OK, where in the law does it say that not buying health insurance will subject you to a TAX?
It says that you are subject to a PENALTY.
Obama himself told George Stephanopoulos that the mandate is NOT A TAX.
How did that morph in a tax?
The government argued both in its brief and during oral argument that the penalty was a tax which it had authority to impose pursuant to the taxing clause. Roberts didn’t pull it out of thin air.
