You say “penalty,” I say “tax,” let’s call the whole thing off.
I read this and laughed right out loud:
“By the way, if you’ve got health insurance, you’re not getting hit by a tax,” the president said during his Friday rally in Roanoke, his third Virginia campaign event of the day. “The only thing that’s happening to you is that you now have more security because insurance companies can’t drop you when you get sick.”
Pardon me, Politico? ::taps Politico on the shoulder:: Get over it! It doesn’t matter what President Obama called it. IT DOESN’T MATTER.
What’s more, almost no one is going to pay the penaltax. ALMOST NO ONE.
