Chief Justice John Roberts’s original 2012 defense of Obamacare was based on his understanding of the individual mandate as a “tax.”

Roberts’s defense of Obamacare derails arguments from numerous Democratic lawmakers, progressive activists and journalists that the inclusion of an individual mandate repeal in a tax reform bill disingenuously conflates two distinct policy areas.

Roberts defended the Obamacare individual mandate on the basis that it falls under the broad congressional power to raise taxes “for the general welfare.”

“The Federal Government does have the power to impose a tax on those without health insurance. Section 5000A is therefore constitutional, because it can reasonably be read as a tax,” Roberts wrote for the court in defense of its 5-4 decision in favor of Obamacare.

My God!   This is so SIMPLE to eliminate with a TAX CUT, thanks to Justice Roberts (a turn-coat who couldn't find anyway to void Obamacare), actually gave the GOP the vehicle to eliminate the "Tax mandate".

You for cutting taxes on the poor, or taxing the crap out of them?  The message is literally that simple!

This GOPe senator reminds me of a STOPPED CLOCK - he only get's it right ONCE in a day...   We'll take it what little we can get, John.

GOP Sen. John Thune pushed back against criticism that the individual mandate repeal is not germane to tax reform when addressing reporters Tuesday.

“My understanding is the individual mandate is a tax collected by the IRS,” Thune said.
