Doesn't work that way - President Obama promised that he wouldn't raise taxes on certain people and then he did it - he broke his word.
Tell me what taxes he raised on the middle class.

Aren't you tired of embarrassing yourself yet?
Priceless, isn't it?

These are the comments that liberals make with a straight face.

It's amusing to me how Republicans can demonize what was, 20 years ago, a REPUBLICAN PLAN!

I guess you're not familiar with tenses like future. Sad.

You aren't going to answer the question are you? This question seems to be making you uncomfortable

Uh - the individual mandate was ruled constitutional because it is a tax - see National Federation of Independent Businesses et al v Sebelius.

It's only a tax on people who refuse to buy individual coverage. People who have health insurance -- on their own or through employers -- won't have to pay the tax.

What does that have to do with the fact that President Obama promised to not raise taxes on the middle class - and then did so - in what he calls his biggest accomplishment?

Really? That's your best comeback? LMFAO.

The Individual Mandate only became a bad idea to Republicans when Obama proposed it.

So it's a tax on the middle class?
