Carney: It's a penalty, not a tax

    That's not what the SCOTUS said it was?
     
  2. He has to say its a penalty. He cannot admit that his boss is the one who signed in to law what some are calling the largest tax increase in our country's history. A tax increase that will impact those who make under $250,00 in spite of his boss's campaign promise that he would not increase taxes, and promised that Obamacare was not a tax.

    The courts ruled it a tax, the administrator can :notlistening: all they want, but its now defined as a tax.

    Don't care what you call it.
    I'm not paying it.

    They can have the money when they pry it
    from my cold dead hands.

    The Democrats will be screaming, "It's not a tax!!!", till the cows come home.

    Whatever ran through Roberts' mind in every other respect, he at least handed the GOP a gift in this one regard.

  5. Carney is such a ho'.
    He should remember that the SC threw out the "penalty", and left only the "tax".
    John Roberts should roast in a very warm place.

    One could choose not to work enough to pay taxes. That would be a choice, wouldn't it? Get the Earned Income Tax Credit, Medicaid and Food Stamps as well.

    If it's not a tax, then Justice Roberts says it ain't constitutional. If it is a tax, it can be repealed under Reconciliation Rules (no filibuster allowed).
