Old video shows Romney lauding (old) mandate

Jun 28, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: 4029TV.com

On the same day the Supreme Court announces its decision on the health care law, a Democratic opposition research group is pushing a video from 2006 that shows Mitt Romney praising the idea of an individual insurance mandate -- a key component of the Affordable Care Act that he now chastises.

Romney's Mormon ancestors flee to Mexico to avoid anti polygamy laws imposed on them in 1892. Pro Vietnam War, he flees to France as a Mormon missionary to avoid military service in 1968. Mitt makes millions of dollars by exporting American jobs to China and other low wage countries. He parks his wealth in oversea banks to avoid taxes. People are told he's a patriot who should be elected President – problem is, who is gonna vote for him – the Chinese?

The Romney’s America of the supper successful and super rich!
Are you a good American? Educated and grass-fed and reasonably free? Then you’ve been hard-wired to believe that “all” denotes some idealized configuration of babies, career, income, marriage, acclaim, health and love and a second house by the beach, all in relatively non-stressful “work/life balance” and with only two full-time nannies, three personal trainers and let’s not forget the dog trainer. The chicken in every pot and a car in every garage is for is for losers.(the GOPers did use the chicken/garage phrase in 1928 touting a period of "Republican prosperity."

LOL, where are all the usual right-wing suspects? Can you imagine these boards had President Obama’s signature piece of legislation been struck down? Those unpatriotic right-wing tea-bagging idiots would have been on here celebrating millions on Americans being without health care.

But it’s good that they aren’t on here; they need to STFU and go away, LOL!

STEPHANOPOULOS: You were against the individual mandate…

OBAMA: Yes.

STEPHANOPOULOS:…during the campaign. Under this mandate, the government is forcing people to spend money, fining you if you don’t. How is that not a tax?

OBAMA: Well, hold on a second, George. Here — here’s what’s happening. You and I are both paying $900, on average — our families — in higher premiums because of uncompensated care. Now what I’ve said is that if you can’t afford health insurance, you certainly shouldn’t be punished for that. That’s just piling on. If, on the other hand, we’re giving tax credits, we’ve set up an exchange, you are now part of a big pool, we’ve driven down the costs, we’ve done everything we can and you actually can afford health insurance, but you’ve just decided, you know what, I want to take my chances. And then you get hit by a bus and you and I have to pay for the emergency room care, that’s…

STEPHANOPOULOS: That may be, but it’s still a tax increase.

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.

STEPHANOPOULOS: But it may be fair, it may be good public policy…

OBAMA: No, but — but, George, you — you can’t just make up that language and decide that that’s called a tax increase. Any…

STEPHANOPOULOS: Here’s the…

OBAMA: What — what — if I — if I say that right now your premiums are going to be going up by 5 or 8 or 10 percent next year and you say well, that’s not a tax increase; but, on the other hand, if I say that I don’t want to have to pay for you not carrying coverage even after I give you tax credits that make it affordable, then…

STEPHANOPOULOS: I — I don’t think I’m making it up. Merriam Webster’s Dictionary: Tax —“a charge, usually of money, imposed by authority on persons or property for public purposes.”

They might feel better when they get their check from their health insurance company for failure to comply with the new LEGISLATION. They should also feel good that there were no activist judges legislating from the bench. This new tax, believe it or not, is a WIN WIN for Tea Partiers. Just like when the SC struck down the Arizona immigration law enforcement grab last week. That was a WIN WIN too!!

You dummycrats just keep spinning everything to make us look bad, but you really are the losers!

Mark my words, as sure as Joseph Smith was right, Bishop Rmoney will be elected president in November!

A Tax by any other name is still a Tax.

Whoever iconed my post about the George Stephanolus interview is a moron. Go read the SCOTUS decision all 193 pages of it. SCOTUS said the mandate stands because its a tax and congress has the authority to tax.

Any bets that Obama still will not admit it's a tax.

“i hope we can change this!”

i've been watching the NOT SO OLD old video of obama telling a hispanic roundtable last year that he COULDN'T change the immigration laws unilaterally...our country, and our constitution don't work that way.

'member this?

"President Barack Obama showed some frustration Wednesday as he responded to questions about stalled immigration reform, chiding a Hispanic roundtable that “we live in a democracy.”

“This notion that somehow I can just change the laws unilaterally is not true,” Obama told Hispanic journalists at an “Open for Questions” White House roundtable.“The fact of the matter is there are laws on the books I have to enforce. And there is a great disservice done to the cause of getting the DREAM Act passed and comprehensive immigration reform passed by perpetuating the notion that somehow by myself I can just go and do these things.”

Read more: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0911/646...

and, then...he unilaterally changed the law.
if you watch nbc, cbs, abc or cnn, chances are this is the first time you've been made aware of this.

rugby has a long trail of bread crumbs behind him. What an utter fool. The cons must be very proud of him today. There's still time for a split convention. The chaos is a given.
