CAN’T KEEP THEIR STORY STRAIGHT: The DOJ is wrong when it claims the ObamaCare mandate is a tax, says … Obama’s OMB chief. “For political reasons, O doesn’t want to be accused of having slapped a brand new tax on the middle class before the election, but he’s on much firmer ground constitutionally if he can argue that the mandate is an exercise of Congress’s taxing power. So we get this pitiful spectacle, in which he and his team insist to any reporter within earshot that the mandate’s not a tax while the DOJ turns around and tells the Supreme Court that it most assuredly is.”
