Try to suffer through 59 second of Pelosi as she tries to call ObamaTax a penalty. This will be the MSM and Liberal spin until the election – the court called it a tax, the Obama Lawyers argued it was a tax and now they are trying to spin it into a something other than a tax.
“It’s a penalty that comes under the Tax Code,” Pelosi said on NBC’s “Meet The Press” as host David Gregory pressed her to say whether she agreed with the Supreme Court, which deemed the law constitutional because the fee used to enforce the individual mandate amounts to a tax, or with President Barack Obama, who has maintained the fee is not a tax.
“It’s a ta—; it’s a penalty for free riders,” Pelosi said, nearly uttering the dreaded T-word before cutting herself off.
Remember Pelosi is the one that said that “We need to pass the bill to find out what’s in it” – I would call her an idiot but it would be an insult to idiots so as Sarah Pain said she is a dingbat but then again Palin endorsed Orin Hatch so that might be the pot calling the kettle black. Anyway it was Pelosi who also said unemployment and food stamps creates jobs and contraceptives help the economy and that Obama
CareTax would enable artist and poets and musicians to practice their craft – you do the math on those statements. Nancy Pelosi has said many amazingly ignorant and crazy things that she either actually believes or hopes that you will.
Frankly, I think it’s Botox gone bad.
But what I find really amazing is her contempt for the the very people she claims to champion – free loaders … oh she calls them “free riders” to church it up a bit but a spade is a shade no matter what you call it. See these people that can afford health insurance but opt not to buy it and who Pelosi calls a free riders often pay 100% out of pocket for their healthcare but Pelosi want you to believe you are picking up their tab and that is nothing a blatant lie! However, lying isn’t new to a Democrat or Nancy Pelosi thay are known for it – just ask Barack Obama the absolute champion of liars.
For years I have been self-insured and I have paid 100% of my healthcare cost and not one thin dime came from the public at large – I am no free rider, free loader, free anything. I have had to wait in line behind dozens of real free loader that had bought one of their 10 or so children in the the ER for the stinking sniffles with their Medicare card in hand because if they showed up at the Doctor during regular hours they might have to pony up a few bucks of their own which more than likely came from a Welfare check we funded with tax dollars.
Let me give you a quick story – about a year or so ago I had to have some medical test, I didn’t think I needed them the Doctor did so I call around and get prices on the test from different hospitals and go with one of them. I take the test and pay the bill about a $1000 ($0.00 tax dollars involved) while there I spoke to the other Doctor who told me that if I was on Medicaid they would have only paid $115 (the taxpayer wouldn’t have paid, not the FREE LOADER on it) and he thought the if the hospital could accept that little for the government… then they could accept that amount from me … but noooooo – see you and I with or without insurance are supplementing Medicare that we are already paying for with taxes! As it turned out the test were unnecessary and a waste of money and amazingly I knew more about the body I’ve been living in for 48 years than the Doctor that saw it for 2 minutes.
Facts are I know several people that pay their own healthcare cost and none of them pass it on the the tax payer the way the free loaders that the Democrats depend on for votes do – oh they might have to make payments on their cost but they pay the bill themselves often negotiating a lower price in the spirit of the free market that they find out the price before getting the service and then pay for it themselves and that’s no free rider anymore than the ObamaTax is not a tax.
You can’t change what it is by giving it a new name.
