The ‘Jedi Mind Trick’ Of Obamacare Tax Word Play
If I were to tell you that the government is going to take more money from you and that they were going to use the IRS to enforce it by hiring thousands of additional IRS agents to do it, what word would you use to describe it? Would it matter if I called it a tax or a penalty if it essentially does the same thing? Of course not. As Juliet said of Romeo, “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” In this case, a turd by any other name would smell as putrid! What we call things really doesn’t matter but what they actually ARE is what is important.
Barack Obama promised he wouldn’t raise taxes on the middle class so Democrats are trying to protect him by trying to keep Obamacare away from that word. Of course, he also promised there would be no mandate to force us to buy Obamacare in the first place and you can hear it come from his own lying mouth in the video below:
Now for the Jedi Mind Trick video. As you’ll see, Democrats don’t come out and answer the question when they’re asked and Nancy Pelosi actually slips up and calls it a tax while she’s trying to argue that it isn’t one. As you’re watching the video, remember that the Supreme Court only upheld Obamacare because after looking at the bill they unanimously concluded it was a tax. And, to top it all off, Obama’s lawyers argued that very thing to the Supreme Court in order to get the bill passed (see Judges Alito and Breyer Call Out Obama Lawyer for Dubbing Mandate A ‘Penalty’ And ‘Tax’). It’s really shameful how these people and our President are lying to our faces and perhaps just as shameful that people actually believe them.Please share:
