Poll: 60% Correctly View ObamaCare Tax as a Tax

Posted by on Jul 02, 2012 at 1:42 pm

They can call it a penalty all they want, but the obvious truth is ObamaCare is the biggest tax hike in the history of the planet.

Good luck running on this, Democrats.

A strong majority of Americans say the individual mandate is a tax, rather than a penalty or a fee, according to a CNN-ORC poll released on Monday.

Sixty percent said they view the individual mandate as a tax, versus 39 that said it’s not a tax.

Republicans jumped on the court’s ruling that the healthcare law’s individual mandate, which the Obama administration originally pitched as a penalty or fee for those who don’t purchase insurance, is constitutional under Congress’s power to tax, claiming it as evidence that President Obama has raised taxes on the middle class.

    Per the SCOTUS, it’s either a tax, or its unconstitutional.

    Take your pick.
