BFT = Big F*****g Tax
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Does it matter what Axelrod calls it? In matters of law, the SC judgment will have to be taken into account, and it considers this a tax.
Romney had better remind America every day until then. In spite of the fact the media will no doubt call him a hypocrite he had better rub these bastards' noses in it.
They got what they wanted—Obamacare to the Supreme Court. NOW they have to abide by the ruling just like the rest of us. The Supreme Court said it WAS A TAX. Let it be written, let it be done. Then it’s a tax. Who is sorry now?
And the sheeple will buy it....people are delusional if they really think this will make people head to DC with torches and pitchforks demanding they get rid of ObamaCare...ain't gonna happen....Roberts was the last line of defense, and he blew it.
Finding it unconstitutional would have allowed him to blame the court and carry on as usual.
Finding it constitutional would have vindicated him.
Finding it a tax removes the possibility of blaming the court, and places the credit for the biggest tax increase in the history of the world squarely upon his shoulders.
Ubama is screwed, and we will have a solidly GOP Congress to undo everything he did.
Talk Radio played the Stephanopoulos interview over and over yesterday where Obamah lied over and over again that his ObamaCare was not a tax.
And yesterday the Supreme Court ruled he lied.
The Supreme Court ruled that Obama and the Democrats are liars, no ifs, ands, or buts about it.
Awfulrod is just proving it once again.
>> Does it matter what Axelrod calls it?
Yeah, it matters what Barky’s Gang calls it, if we’re supposed to derive all those *political* benefits that are hidden in the penumbras of the crappy decision, according to the spinning pundits...
remember, one of those political bennies is hanging that TAX around their pencil necks.
But if the ‘rats won’t own up to what SCOTUS actually said themselves, do you honestly think that the media (or the feckless Republicans) will hold their feet to the fire?
Nah. They’ll have their cake and eat it, too.
The Supreme Court ruled that Obamacare is nothing more than a massive tax. The biggest tax hike in the history of the world, in fact. And the ONLY way to get rid of it is to vote Obama out of office.
All Taxes are mandated. Now we split hairs with a bent nose thug like that idiot.
Remind folks every day of the TAX & play all those lovely videos of Obama (in ‘preacher’ mode) railing on and on about how nobody who makes less than $250K is going to see “one penny” or “one dime” of a tax increase. People hate taxes which is why Obamatax didn’t pass, but Obamacare did.
Axelrodent is a lying slimeball ... makes real rats look good.
And we will know who is worth voting for by who shoves it up Axelrod’s... It’s high time to make your congress critter aware that we aren’t happy with ObamaTAX and we want them to stand up for change. Their choice. They change or we replace them. Not a threat, just a simple notice.
It’s a TAX and the whole world heard it.
But Roberts outsmarted you, LOL, and gave all the dimocrats a tax to defend.
I think it’s hilarious.
I wanted to hear him say, right out of the gate, that this is the biggest tax increase the WORLD has ever seen. Can someone get to him and tell him to make that his slogan for the next 5 months?
Prediction: Obama will continue to insist it’s not a tax.
Axelrod doesn’t have to say it’s a tax, Roberts and the SCOTUS said it for him.
IMO, we can’t fix this in the fall at the ballot box. It will take other means.
Here’s a good one ..... Obama is thinking he dodged a bullet yesterday, the bullet that he spent his first three years ignoring the failing economy to push through healthcare that ends up not constitutional.
Yup, he dodged that one, but he didn’t avoid this one (which I think is worse):
(From Hot Air:) “when Americans left the workforce by the millions in despair over a lack of job creation in 2009 and 2010, Barack Obama spent his time focused not on job creation but on raising taxes on the middle class.”
so is this an extra tax on top of the 500 billion of taxes built in to Obamacare ?
... with 'you'll have to pass it to find out whats in it' played over & over in the background.
Throw in the graphic of Pelosi marching through a Tea Party rally with her giant gavel.
If only I had a few extra bucks to put something like that together.
Exactly right, MM!!
Now is the time to sign up/go to MSM sites and post this fact....IT'S THE LARGEST TAX INCREASE IN HISTORY!! - on every lib comment.
ObamaTax IS a BFD!!
It was found Constitutional. The details are irrelevant. The President can go ob saying it’s not a tax. Doesn’t matter at all. Romneycare has been preserved.
How about flyers/pdf’s with that Piglosi/gavel pic, with “ObamaTax...the BIGGEST tax increase in history. They had to pass it, for us to find out!”...we can print and hand out/leave behind?
So we shouldn't bother voting for a GOP-dominated congress that can repeal it all?
We should just pout like spoiled little babies and give up because we didn't get exactly what we wanted RIGHT NOW?
The U.S. Supreme Court's decision that President Obama's health care law is constitutional keeps it alive for now. But it's important to remember that the law has already lost in the court of public opinion. The Supreme Court ruling is a temporary reprieve more than anything else.
Also, in my ‘ad’, I should have said: ‘massive NEW tax’. People hates taxes and tax hikes, but they hate new taxes most of all.
If it is a tax, then the Court has placed the entire thing in the purview of House Ways and Means. That is the tax writing committee. That means that HW&M determines how the thing is funded, if it is at all. Further, tax law requires only a simple majority in the senate to pass/overturn.
The question I have still remains: how can any kind of bill pass out of the congress and just randomly be called a Tax?
hates = hate
“Prediction: Obama will continue to insist its not a tax”
Yep. The dims will continue their Big Lie strategy and dare the MSM to call them out. Now we will see the journolisters go into high gear and try to pull that sorry kenyan’s skinny behind over the finish line.
The kenyan won't have any problem fundraising now. All those with their fingers in the Obamacare pie stand to make hundreds of billions. They will now pour the payola into the kenyans campaign and super pacs.
I have to give the dims credit for reviewing why hillarycare failed and ruthlessly pounding obamacare through. They got it through congress and co-opted industry. Pure National Socialism. If only the GOP fought like that.
Axlerod says it’s a penalty.
You know who will be penalized?
Parents of young adults under 27.
I guarantee the penalty will be levied on the parents of the 20 something year old adults so that the young heads full of mush can feel that they got “Free” health care.
Assholerod once more demonstrates why the image of the Democrats is a Jackass.
We may even see the Malignant Narcissist himself come unglued. He's used to running against don't-you-dare-say-his-middle-name McCain. Once the Superpacs start hitting Obama where it hurts, he probably won't even be able to *remember* his middle name.
Need any more proof? We’ve got Barry right where we want him.
But the GOP hasn't had the stomach for a fight since Lee Atwater died. As bad as things have gotten its long past time for them to grow some 'nads.
Axelrod is an insidious moron.
Fortunately there are private interests/concerns that recognize Obama for the unparalleled, unmitigated disaster he is. They will lead the charge against him, and I would imagine it will be devastating.
How can he say it is not a tax when the supremes said it was?
Is there any evidence they will repeal it? Or is there evidence they will increase it?
Sounds like you should vote for Obama again.
You can vote for Obama you want, it’s not going to make much difference. Romney, Obama, Bush,they are all the same. Obama modeled his presidency on everything Bush did. Romney’s just the least intelligent of the three, and he unleashed this fascist healthcare bill on us.
Now THAT'S funny! I can't believe I hadn't seen that before now.
I just came up with that one. It seemed to fit so I went with it.
“All taxes are mandated.”
Apparently, some are more mandated than others. An excerpt from a piece Mark Levin linked to recently (source AP, via NPR):
“The law, however, severely limits the ability of the IRS to collect the penalties. There are no civil or criminal penalties for refusing to pay it and the IRS cannot seize bank accounts or dock wages to collect it. No interest accumulates for unpaid penalties.
So how can the IRS enforce the mandate? Scary letters and threats to withhold tax refunds.
The law allows the IRS to withhold tax refunds to collect the penalty, and most filers get refunds. This year, 77 percent of the 135 million individual income tax returns processed by the IRS qualified for a refund. The average refund: $2,707.
For those who don’t qualify for a refund, a stern letter from the IRS can be effective, even if it doesn’t come with the threat of civil or criminal penalties, said Elizabeth Maresca, a former IRS trial attorney who supervises the Tax & Consumer Litigation Clinic at the Fordham University law school.
“Most people pay because they’re scared, and I don’t think that’s going to change,” Maresca said.”
