Re: the SCOTUS ruling.....This should be the questioning from every legitimate reporter going forward:
Q: Given that the SC has deemed the health care act constitutional only insofar that it is a tax, and given Obama's pledge to not raise taxes on those making less than $250K, will Obama now work with the Congress to repeal the health care act?
White House Probable Answer: No, of course not. As we've said all along, this is not a tax. It is a penalty. A fine, if you will.
Q: So if you consider this to NOT be a tax, then are you saying that the health care act is unconstitutional? The SC has clearly stated it can ONLY be considered constitutional if it is considered a tax.
WHPA: Next question.
