Health Care Reform Comes Clean on Taxes

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Ms. FOXX. Madam Speaker, there is an interesting new development on the ObamaCare front.

Remember the penalties on families that do not purchase health insurance, the ones that will top $2,000 for many families? Remember what President Obama said about this individual mandate penalty? He said it was ``absolutely not a tax increase.''

Well, I guess times have changed.

Now the Obama administration's Justice Department is defending this penalty in court as part of the government's ``power to lay and collect taxes.''

At least the truth about this $4 billion a year tax is now out. Too bad Washington Democrats didn't come clean until months after ObamaCare became law.

Madam Speaker, the American people deserve better.
