The Middle Class Tax Hike Obama Imposed

This is rich:

Late last night, the Obama Department of Justice filed a motion to dismiss the Florida-based lawsuit against the health care law, arguing that the court lacks jurisdiction and that the State of Florida and fellow plaintiffs haven’t presented a claim for which the court can grant relief. To bolster its case, the DOJ cited the Anti-Injunction Act, which restricts courts from interfering with the government’s ability to collect taxes.

The Act, according to a DOJ memo supporting the motion to dismiss, says that “no suit for the purpose of restraining the assessment or collection of any tax shall be maintained in any court by any person, whether or not such person is the person against whom such tax was assessed.” The memo goes on to say that it makes no difference whether the disputed payment it is called a “tax” or “penalty,” because either way, it’s “assessed and collected in the same manner” by the Internal Revenue Service.

In other words, the individual mandate is a vast tax hike on the middle class, despite Obama’s protestations to the contrary. So sayeth the Justice Department.

Either way, the individual American and the entire economy are screwed unless this monstrosity is repealed.

    I live in Florida, my initial reaction to the DOJ’s motion to dismiss is that it reveals a level of desperation I hadn’t expected to surface so quickly.

    We all knew the Obama Administration lied and outrageously misrepresented the facts of ObamaCare in order to pass the abominable take-over of our healthcare system.

    However, Obama’s willingness to drop the mask so quickly and let himself be revealed for a duplicitous demagogue caught me by surprise.

    I expected more tap dance and double talk from Oily Oligarch.
