In 2010 Gibbs tried to defend Obama’s pledge that he wouldn’t raise taxes from healthcare (August 3, 2010).

Right. That’s why they hired new workers at the IRS to enforce it. Some people in this country and really ignorant and most of them voted for Obama.
The REAL losers are the middle class individuals and familiars who can’t afford to pay $4000-$10000 per year for obozocare-mandated health insurance and who WILL NOT get a penny of government subsidy. Of course, they can just let the IRS fine them with the OBOZOCARE TAX of from $750 – $3800 each year; that way, they’ll go bankrupt just a little more slowly.
The mandate went into the Supreme Court as a fine and came out a tax. How is that possible? So everybody in Congress then voted on a lie as they were told it wasn’t a tax. It should be repealed on that basis and put up for a new vote.

So I guess it is invalid. Throw it out.
We should be glad the decision came when it did. Now it is up to Romney’s people to explain the cost and downside to Obamacre with not so gentle reminder as to how to remedy the situation.
Team Romney is now squeezing lemons for the lemonaide.
This SCOTUS decision may be a blessing in disguise.
A few of the patient “rights” under the lunatic-left d-cRAT socialist healthcare nationalization, rationing, taxation and abortion atrocity:
1. you have a “right” to be taxed to death if you don’t pay for government-run obozocare
2. you have a “right” to be put into prison if you don’t pay the IRS penalty for not getting obozocare
3. you have a “right” to go without medical care when ALL doctors refuse to take any new patients under obozocare.
4. you have a “right” to pay for your obozocare out of your own pocket when your employer cancels your healthcare.
5. you have a “right” to die when the obozocare death panel refuses your treatment
Be afraid – be very afraid – of d-cRAT socialist healthcare.
Does Gibbs doubt the SCOTUS? If you read the bill, the whole thing is a tax hike and a power grab. Health care is secondary.
These mentally retarded sociopathic liars in the Hussein camp will say anything to get what they want
This is will hopefully energize all those fence sitters to show up and vote against SCOAMF in November.
Just got this email:
Today, the Supreme Court upheld Obamacare. But regardless of what the Court said about the constitutionality of the law, Obamacare is bad medicine, it is bad policy, and when I’m President, the bad news of Obamacare will be over.
It was always a liberal pipedream that a 2,700 page, multi-trillion-dollar Federal Government takeover of our health care system actually could address the very serious problems we face with health care. With Obamacare fully installed, government will reach fully half of the economy – that is the recipe for a struggling economy and declining prosperity.
On Day One, I will work to repeal Obamacare to stop the government’s takeover of our health care and intrusion in our lives. I will push for real reform to our health care system that focuses on helping patients and protecting taxpayers.
We cannot afford Barack Obama’s on-the-job learning, Big Government proposals, and irresponsible spending. Our basic liberties are at stake – and I will fight to restore our freedoms, renew the respect for our Constitution, and halt the government takeover of health care.
This November it’s all on the line. The stakes couldn’t be higher.
Donate $10 or more to put a stop to the policies of Barack Obama and the liberal Democrats.
Call it what you want you lying POS, if it’s money out of my pocket, it’s a TAX, stupid!
Everyone you know who is of voting age.
Get them registered. Get them to the polls. Get them to vote Republican. November is THE LAST CHANCE to save our Republic at the ballot box.
Otherwise, come 2013 the burden on the average American family will increase by TENS OF THOUSANDS of dollars more yearly in additional taxes, fees, and regulatory costs directly passed to your family. EPA regulation will triple your power bill. Costs passed along to businesses will raise the price of everything. And now, Obameecare will force you to LOSE YOUR INSURANCE within a couple years, if not months.
This is before hyper-inflation comes, and it will certainly be the result of these taxes and fees. Our economy will crash, and Obamee plans to rise from the ashes of America as our new dictator.
You have one chance to stop them now at the ballot box.
Otherwise, we will have to resort to far more drastic measures, and the jackbooted thugs won’t be using rubber bullets on you and your loved ones and neighbors and friends.
The clock is running out on America. We have less than six months now. If you don’t vote, if you don’t get your family to vote, you have nobody to blame but yourselves.
Keep in mind the tree of liberty.
Stephanopoulos: “You Reject That It’s A Tax Increase? ”
Obama: “I Absolutely Reject That Notion”
STEPHANOPOULOS: [The individual mandate] is still a tax increase.
OBAMA: No. That’s not true, George. The — for us to say that you’ve got to take a responsibility to get health insurance is absolutely not a tax increase. What it’s saying is, is that we’re not going to have other people carrying your burdens for you anymore than the fact that right now everybody in America, just about, has to get auto insurance. Nobody considers that a tax increase. People say to themselves, that is a fair way to make sure that if you hit my car, that I’m not covering all the costs.
STEPHANOPOULOS: But it may be fair, it may be good public policy…
OBAMA: No, but — but, George, you — you can’t just make up that language and decide that that’s called a tax increase. Any…

Nobody, except for the Supreme Court that is…
The auto insurance argument is so ridiculous!!!
First of all, automobile insurance is enforced by the State government individually, NOT by the Federal gov’t!! Second, you are only required to have auto insurance IF you own an automobile, but you are not required to buy a vehicle. If you choose to have a car your State will require proof of insurance in order to tag and register the vehicle.
