Rush Limbaugh: The Court Rules of Individual Mandate … Obamacare is the Largest Tax Increase in the History of the World
Does any one honestly think that Obamacare would have passed as a tax increase? Obamacare was a stealth tax all along.
Wasn’t it Barack Obama who stated that he would not raise taxes on a family making over $250,000? Wasn’t it Barack Obama who said over and over and over again that the “individual mandate” of Obamacare was not a tax? However, if it walks like a tax and talks like a tax … it is a tax. Sadly today the US Supreme Court of the United States and mainly Chief Justice John Roberts called it a tax. That is the only reason why Obamacare passed Constitutionality.
Rush Limbaugh stated the following regarding Obama’s Barack Obama and the greatest tax increase ever perpetrated on the United States. We the American people have been deceived by Barack Obama in ways that no one could have conceived. Shame on Obama and Democrats for lying to teh American people. More so, shame on the SCOTUS and Justice John Roberts for bending over backwards to find a way to pass Obamacare. The end results, Obamacare is nothing more the the greatest tax increase in the history of the word.
RUSH: Hey, folks, have you seen the economic news today? Have you heard about the unemployment numbers today? (laughing) Gross domestic product, have you heard about any of that? Because I have it here, and it sucks. It’s a disaster. The economy of this country remains a disaster.
And we, the American people, have just been deceived in ways that nobody contemplated. And what we now have is the biggest tax increase in the history of the world. What we have been told by the chief justice of the Supreme Court and four liberals on the court: Obamacare is just a massive tax increase. That’s all it is. Obama lied to us about that. The Democrats lied. “It wasn’t a tax. There was no way it was a tax.”
The chief justice was hell-bent to find a way to make this law applicable, so he just decided, you know what, as a tax increase, it works, because there’s no limit on the federal government’s ability to tax. And it’s right there in the preamble of the Constitution, right there, Article 1, Section 8, the general welfare clause, it’s been established Congress can tax whatever, whoever, whenever, how much they want. Even when they don’t ask for it, the Supreme Court is gonna find a way to make what they want to do legal because John Roberts said it’s not our job here to forbid this. It’s not our job to protect people from outcomes. It’s not our job to determine whether it is right or wrong or any of that. We just get to look at it. We can’t forbid this. This is what the elected representatives of the people want. (more at Rush Limbaugh)

Keeping Obamacare alive means Mitt Romney still has this unpopular plan to campaign against, including the individual mandate, the most unpopular part (60 percent of Americans oppose it). Do you really think turning the mandate from a government edict to a massive tax hike will make it more popular?
Then there’s the GOP base, which feels completely betrayed by Justice Roberts. They know that the only way to kill Obama-Care is to strangle it with their bare, electoral hands.
Any chance of Democrats taking back the House are dead. The odds of the GOP picking up the Senate just improved. And Romney’s got a fired-up base ready for November.
Now imagine what would have happened if Obama- care had lost: Obama’s base would be pumped up, while Romney would be forced to spend the next four months explaining his health care plans.
Instead, the Supreme Court threw the Obama- care debate from Democrat-friendly “health care” territory, and right into the GOP’s “higher taxes” wheelhouse.
President Obama? Why are you smiling? You told a HUGE HUGE lie to the American Public once again.
Because President Obama repeatedly claimed the mandate isn’t a tax, he now has to explain why he went to the SCOTUS and said it was. He also has to defend raising taxes on the middle class, after repeatedly promising he wouldn’t.

The American voters need to make the Democrat party go away at every level. Progressive/Socialists are all about fundamentally changing our government into pure socialism.
[...] Hot off the presses, The RNC did not waste much time in creating the following political ad that Obamacare is a tax, yet another Barack Obama broken promise. From yesterday’s US Supreme Court decision where Obamacare passed Constitutional muster because it was deemed a tax. This was yet another broken promise from Barack Obama. However, it is worse than that, Obama lied to the American people in passing off his signature piece of legislation saying that it was not a tax. [...]
