They’ll continue to refer to it as a penalty.
And dare Congress to stop them.
No he doesn’t.
If it’s a tax it must be collected as required by the Constitution and the law.
However neither get in the way of this administration so why would it stop them now?
We can run to the courts but we likely don’t have standing until the “tax” is collected. Plus I have lost all faith in our nations court system.
When ruled by a Dictator/King only HIS wishes count. The peasantry/proletariat can go to hell along with the laws they thought they rode in on.
Stop asking such silly questions.
It’s not a tax.
It’s a Bill of Attainder.
Which, as far as I can tell, won't stop him from doing whatever he wants, while the GOP sits on its thumbs.
Actually in practice, they do it all the time now, don't they? I'm thinking of:
You may argue that the executive has no statutory right to waive taxes, but in practice, they've been negotiating taxes forever.
Still perhaps we could suit because the tax isn't being applied equally.
The same way tax dodging Democrats just say oops it was an accident or that darn tax software messed up and get away with it......The Media will only “expose” the Republicans or people they disagree with who fail to pay taxes.
Double edged sword. If it’s a tax, then it violates due process. If it’s a penalty, then it violates the basic rules of contracts. This is far from over.
I thought the waivers applied to the coverage amounts for employees, not the tax if an individual chooses not to carry insurance. Am I missing something?
Yes, he has more and bigger guns. He can dispense favors and penalties as he wishes. I bet any challenge to the waivers will go no where in the courts and will grind on for years, regardless. We must turn this devil out of office in November, assuming the peoples' vote still counts. That is somewhat in doubt because of Obama's mass legitimization of illegals and the plans for vote fraud on a never seen before scale. This November is for all the marbles.
Liberals have yet to realize that the mandate is out the window, and probably, the entire law as it never originated in the House. That said, there’s a zillion things left to litigate involving this monstrosity of a bill. Perhaps, though, we’ll be saved some of this by the House Republicans actually getting off their duffs and shutting down government until this tax bill is destroyed.
Tax or not, he never had waiver power anyway. I’d bet if Romney is elected and tries his “waivers to all 50 states” the dems will file suit.
From another article may 2011.... see link below...
“If Congress cannot give the president a power to suspend part of a law, how can Congress give the president a power to dispense with part of it for only some Americans a power that would be much more dangerous”?
Yeah, like the Rats want this to go before the USSC a second time, with new arguments about the “tax”?
Demon Rats do not want to throw stones in this glass house, unless they want to brown off all their special friends they have already waived the monster for.
Don’t worry, once those “taxes” are levied the lawsuits will be flying.
How can an illegal alien from Kenya be the de facto president?
