Throughout Obama's Presidential campaign, Barack Obama stated over and over again that no one making less than $250,000 would not have their taxes increased, "not even by one dime".
During the fight for the bill to reform Health Care, a provision was included that there would be a fine or penalty imposed and collected by the IRS if an American citizen did not buy Health Insurance. The justification of this penalty was suppose to be covered through the 'Commerce Clause".
Obama continued to defend that this was not a tax but a penalty, as reported by Politico on 9/21/09. See this link: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0909/27384.html
Now that the Health Care bill is in court with Constitutional challenges to this penalty and the commerce clause that is being used for the penalty's justification, Obama admits it is a 'TAX', and therefore is covered under the Anti-Injunction Act to be collected.

Who does this President think he is fooling? Americans are not stupid! Americans can tell a right from wrong. Americans can tell when a President in conning them!
Is this how a President conducts himself with citizens that he is supposed to be 'leading'?
Barack Obama is 'acting' more like a street corner hustler trying to get you to find the pea under one of three cups that he shuffles around. If you guess wrong, you lose and have to pay him.
Street corner hustling may have worked fine for a Chicago Community Organizer in association with an organized crime syndicate, but it is clearly not what an American President should be doing.
President Obama, the American People are not toys for your amusement. The American People are hurting and desperate for true leadership, someone who they can instill confidence in to help bring our Nation back to the Great Country we once enjoy and were proud of.
You promised transparency. You promised Hope and Change. You promise to be different from past administrations.
Apparently you are different, which has caused your administration to be one of disgust and shame.
Barack Obama, it's time to start being an American President! Stop the lies, be a man, be honorable and serve the American People with trust and dignity!
Or better yet...resign!
Now the bill that is law states this:
SHARED RESPONSIBILITY PAYMENT.—
(1) IN GENERAL.—If an applicable individual
fails to meet the requirement of subsection (a) for 1 or more months during any calendar year beginning after 2013, then, except as provided in subsection (d), there is hereby imposed a penalty with respect to the individual in the amount determined under subsection (c).
Sub C states:
AMOUNT OF PENALTY.—
1) IN GENERAL.—The penalty determined under this subsection for any month with respect to any individual is an amount equal to 1⁄12 of the applicable dollar amount for the calendar year.
(3) APPLICABLE DOLLAR AMOUNT.—For purposes of paragraph (1)—
(A) IN GENERAL.—Except as provided in subparagraphs (B) and (C), the applicable dollar
amount is $750.
(B) PHASE IN.—The applicable dollar amount is $95 for 2014 and $350 for 2015.
Now is it a "Tax" or a "Penalty Fee" for not buy commodity?
Nothing in the law claims this to be a Tax, and clearly states 'Penalty' but the Obama Admin now claims (to defend itself in court against 20 states) that it's a tax. Well the law should then state a "Penalty Tax"... Right?
Nice piece here Adams Patriot!!!
One question I have always had...does Obama think that everyone who doesn't buy health insurance can actually afford it, but chooses not to buy it? I mean, if you can't afford to buy health insurance, how the hell can you pay the penalty?
Maybe if they would concentrate on fixing the economy and getting people back to work, people would then have health insurance, either through their workplace or by having funds for the purchase.
This administration is way out of touch with reality!
Well I guess his, Pelosi and Reid's "PHASE IN" won't be so bad for them, but of course when it tops out at $750 and they can't pay it then they go on a payment plan... with interest, which could end up costing them nearly $2000 over the life of repayment... and thats on the initial penalty. What if they can't afford it again the following year... and the year after that.
The whole thing is a (Chicago style) racket.
