To be “fair”, I am including this weeks Republican address to the nation.
I only watched the first minute or two before I was overwhelmed by the duplicity of this address.
Nobody says that the Supreme Court decision is a seal of approval of Obamacare. The decision merely says that the law is constitutional. It passes no judgment on whether it is good or bad.
The tax that the Republicans are talking about only applies to people who could afford to have health insurance, but refuse to do so. Of the people making less than $250,000 a year to whom the President says this does not raise their taxes, how many fall into the above category? If there are any, we could just call this a stupidity tax. If you are making less than $250,000 a year and can afford to buy health insurance, you would be pretty stupid not to do so, unless you had liquid assets large enough to cover unexpected medical bills that could be in the millions of dollars.
