Since 2009, the President has absolutely rejected the fact that ObamaCare's mandate is a tax. Yesterday's Supreme Court decision made it clear: ObamaCare is a tax on the American people.
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor made the following comments on MSNBC's Morning Joe:
“The President had promised in the very beginning of this discussion if people had health care they liked they could keep it. We know that's not the case. The President also said throughout the discussion, as did Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats, this was not a tax, that this mandate was not a tax on individuals. Well, we now know what the Court said - it is a tax. It’s time to stop all the broken promises and let’s get back to the health care that people want. We know that families want choices for themselves. They don't want Washington coming in and telling them what kind of health care to have.”
