"In this case, however, it is reasonable to construe what Congress has done as increasing taxes on those who have a certain amount of income, but choose to go without health insurance," Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in the majority opinion. "Such legislation is within Congress's power to tax."
50% of people pay no federal income taxes and the country is broke. Now what????
Obama said he wouldn't raise taxes, but Obamacare will obviously raise taxes for those that do pay in all tax brackets. How much will the tax brackets go up? 10% each? President Obama said on national TV numerous times that the mandate was not a TAX. The Supreme Court voted that the mandate was constitutional only if it was a TAX. So will the President now go on national TV numerous times and admit it is a TAX?
If the government can make you buy healthcare they can make you buy anything now and just claim it's a 'tax' or something.
