Justice Roberts flip-flopped in support of Obama at the last minute, because Obamacare was a tax. Now the White House says he was wrong because it isn’t a tax.
The White House insisted Sunday the consequence for Americans not having health insurance is a penalty fee, despite the Supreme Court ruling that it is a tax, and said the debate on the Affordable Care Act should finally end.
Apparently the supreme court decision was in error, and Obamacare should be tossed. The debate is over.
White House Chief of Staff Jack Lew said on “Fox News Sunday” that “when the Supreme Court rules” the country “has a final decision” and that the presidential campaigns should focus on the economy and jobs. “
What we need to do is go forward with the implementation” of the law, Lew said. He also argued the health care law will not result in a tax increase on the middle class, despite a Congressional Budget Office report that it would result in a roughly $27 million increase over the next 10 years.
