UPDATE: The spin from the Althouse Blog:
Obama imposes huge tax on the American middle class.That is true.
Looking back in history:
STEPHANOPOULOS: [I]t's still a tax increase.I guess Ms Pelosi was right about having to pass the ACA bill to know what it says.
OBAMA: No. That's not true, George. The — for us to say that you've got to take a responsibility to get health insurance is absolutely not a tax increase. What it's saying is, is that we're not going to have other people carrying your burdens for you anymore than the fact that right now everybody in America, just about, has to get auto insurance. Nobody considers that a tax increase. People say to themselves, that is a fair way to make sure that if you hit my car, that I'm not covering all the costs.
UPDATE: Dracut Form was quick to comment. Nice insights.
