I wrote about it at the time, but it’s worth watching again in light of Virginia’s ruling that the ObamaCare individual mandate is unconstitutional, in part because the administration was so insistent during the “debate” (steamrolling) that the penalty for not meeting the individual mandate was not a tax but is now fighting legal challenges on the basis that it IS a tax (better to break a campaign promise and raise taxes on ALL Americans, including those BO promised he’d never raise taxes on–those making under $250,000–than to have ObamaCare tossed out because it’s unconstitutional).
So, without further ado, here’s the interview from last September. The tax stuff is the whole damn thing because of course BO can’t answer a straight question without waffling on for ages, but you can skip to 3:08ish when Stephanopoulos reminds BO that he was against the mandate before he was for it. Then BO stomps his whittle feeties and pounds his bitty fisties demanding that poor old George believe that the penalty for not buying what the government orders you to buy is. not. a. tax.
Go ahead, George, send BO a dictionary for Christmas. He needs one.
