Is Obamacare a tax or not
Made popular 327 days ago in
The Obama administration is saying it is not. The Supreme court said that the only way the legislation could be legal would be that it is a tax.
As a tax it is the largest in American history and falls directly on the poor and middle class. The rich don't need healthcare insurance at all if they don't want it and already probably have terrific plans and can afford to pay any "tax or penalty"

If the administration keeps insisting it is not a tax, can the bill be revisited by the courts?
Maybe - never thought of it
Maybe - if Obama declares it not a tax
No -state why

If it is a tax, the Republicans can use reconciliation to repeal it. Simple majority in each House would be required. The Democrats could sue to prevent it and that could go directly to the Supreme Court.

It is a liar’s tax. It is a liar’s penalty. It is a liar’s plan to further bankrupt the nation
The Liar’s Tax
- Alan Caruba Saturday, June 30, 2012
The most singular aspect of Obamacare is the way Democrats, from the President on down, consistently lied about the fact that it was a tax. Interviewed by George Stephanopolos on ABC News, September 2009, Obama was asked if he rejected the criticism that it was a tax increase. “I absolutely reject that notion,” was his reply.
No need to quote the others. They all lied. It took the Supreme Court and, in particular, Chief Justice Roberts, to call Obamacare a tax in the process of eliminating the Commerce Clause of the Constitution as a justification for imposing this burden on Americans.
As CNBC’s Larry Kudlow was quick to note, “Twenty new or higher taxes across the board are bad for economic growth, bad for job hiring, bad for investors, and bad for families,” adding that when “you tax something more, you get less of it.”
