your partisanship is pathetic, bro.
It was a fine as envisioned by Obama and the Democrats.
It was defined as a fine in the law.
It was argued to be a fine by the lawyers who represented it.
It was supported as a fine by the lower courts.
It was made into a tax by the Supreme Court ruling.
The whole, "Obama and the liberals said this wasn't a tax, but it is." argument is a losing one, because the Supreme Court ultimately made it into a tax through their interpretation.
do what you must to convince yourself it's not a tax, i'll stick with facts.
wasn't it you that lied to me about liberals not supporting this mandate a while ago? .. and now here you are ... supporting it.
Ok, I'll have to work on proving you wrong. It's late and I don't feel like digging. But....how about the fact that SCOTUS declared, legally, that it was a new tax. How do you feel about that ****, partisano?
edit: btw, I really could give a **** about the 15k new IRS agents...the new tax is rock solid.
