It's not a tax, it's a fee.
It's not a tax, it's a penalty.
Pat Caddell (Democratic talker):
This November, if President Obama goes before the voters on the defensive--that is, on a rickety platform of defending Obamacare as a tax increase--it is he who has a huge problem. After all, his healthcare program was sold as a boon to the middle class, with a few regulatory sticks included therein. But if Obamacare can be exposed for what it is--a huge tax increase, the reality of which Obamacare proponents did their best to obscure--then the probability of his survival shrinks dramatically. To be sure, such an exposing of Obamacare as the ObamaTax will not be easy; the White House and the Democrats, as well as their handmaidens in the Main Stream Media, will do their best to armor up against any attack on the tax issue.Report: 83 percent of doctors have considered quitting over Obamacare
It's not a tax increase, it's an expiration of "tax cuts" that have been the tax rate for 10 years.
It's not letting you keep your own money, it's increased government spending.
