I thought when they were pushing this through congress that they were insisting it wasn't a tax, yet when they got in front of the SCOTUS to argue their case it all of a sudden became a tax. Would representing this legislation as a tax from the get go have made the public think differently of this bill and how it would be paid for?
I'm sort of feeling like this is a bait and switch. I guess I shouldn't be surprised considering how it was written, passed and argued.

I just read that too. I have mixed feelings about it. On one hand, as soon as Obama Care was whispered, our health insurance premiums & co-pays skyrocketed! I was hoping (maybe naively so) that if everyone had to have it, it would make health ins. companies more competitive w/ ea. other & prices would actually drop a bit. Since I haven't read the bill (which I don't think most have - it's like the size of War & Peace & not as entertaining), I guess we'll just have to wait & see. :/
