I read, the other day, a telling comment: both candidates have stood for the same health care reform plan. The difference is one has the support of his party, and the other's party is running away from him on it like a rat from a cat (my words). It'll be entertaining to see where the it's a tax - it's not a tax contretemps will end up as November approaches. Poor "tell me what to say and I'll say it" Rominee: his false claim of never raising taxes in Massachusetts vs the false claim that Rs want to make about the ACA.
Knowing Mitt as we now do, let's assume he'll just tell both lies at the same time. It's a lifestyle choice.
[Update: well, I guess we know: it's a tax. Except that he lied about it, as you'd expect. He said the majority of the court said it's a tax, which, as we know, is flat-out wrong. One of nine said it's a tax. Nice try, Mitt, ass-coverer. He went on to add that at the federal level it's a tax, and at the state level, it's a penalty. Even better. Fact is, it is what it is: a conservative idea, first enacted by Romney, and now by Obama. Call it what you want. Evaluate it on its merits. Yeah. That'll happen.]
