    Who cares?

    What difference does it make whether Romney calls it a fine or a tax?

    The bottom line is that a majority of voters don't like Obamacare - period.

    And that belongs to Obama - not Romney.

    You are right. Romney is a hypocrite about the issue. He is a very flawed candidate in light of conservatism and the Constitution. Despite that, I am voting for him over Obama.

    At the risk of behaving like a democrat and doing something illegal I am going to repost something I posted on another thread. But this is a chance to pull CTB's chain and not let an opportunity go to waste, to paraphrase the democrat mantra.

    ***********************************************************************
    From "affordable healthcare act" thread!

    Under the Roberts ruling on Obamacare the law is unconstitutional. All tax legislation must originate in the House of Representatives. Obamacare originated in the Senate. Also there are numerous taxes in the law other than the so-called penalty. After these taxes go into effect there will be another challenge to the Law. For that reason it is essential that the makeup of the court not become more Marxist.

    ************************************************** *************
    From: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Governm...date-obamacare

    The Roberts Opinion that Obamacare is “not commerce” guts seventy-five years of the poisonous growth of the vines of government under the expanded Commerce Clause:

    The Framers knew the difference between doing something and doing nothing. They gave Congress the power to regulate commerce, not to compel it. Ignoring that distinction would undermine the principle that the Federal Government is a government of limited and enumerated powers. The individual mandate thus cannot be sustained under Congress’s power to “regulate Commerce."​

    In what may be Roberts' ultimate legal slam-dunk of Obama, his ruling that the President and Congress passed a tax now threatens to constitutionally invalidate all of Obamacare under Article 1, Section 7 of the Constitution: “All bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills.”

    Sigh....the dishonesty is astounding.

    First, Romney never called it a fine, someone from his campaign did.

    Second, Romney said that he disagrees with the SC ruling but since the ruling came that it is a tax then it is a tax.

    Romney has been nothing but consistent on this.
