Team Obama may be cheering now, just after the Supreme Court upheld the
individual mandate, but the political problems for the president and
congressional Democrats has just grown tenfold.
That such a monumental change to American life and liberty was imposed with no Republican votes with President Obama repeatedly denying that his government takeover of one-sixth of our economy was NOT a tax, and to be caught in that blatant and purposeful lie, will damage him severely. The president told us one thing, then told the Supreme Court quite another story in order to win his case. The SCOTUS upheld the individual mandate because Obama's lawyer argued that it was, in fact, a tax!
