Busted: Audio of Obama Lawyer Arguing Obamacare Is a Tax Stuns WH Chief of Staff Jack Lew (Video)

Democrats told us Obamacare was not a tax.
Then they argued in front of the Supreme Court that it was a tax.
Now they want to tell us again that Obamacare is not a tax.

Jack Lew, the Obama White House Chief of Staff, was trying to persuade Chris Wallace on FOX News Sunday that Obamacare was not a tax. But it didn’t work out so well for Lew when Wallace played audio of the Obama lawyer arguing that Obamacare was a tax in front of the Supreme Court.

Lew was stunned after being caught in the lie.

Nearly 75% of ObamaTax costs will fall on the backs of those Americans making less than $120,000 a year.

    This line of questioning was available long before this ruling and without the America-killing, irrational decision by Benedict Roberts. The fact that the media would have waited until after the SCOTASS decision that turned the United States into the American Socialist Superstate is just one more bit of evidence to their utter and complete lack of competence or integrity. Verilli made this argument some time back and no one in the media bothered to hop on it. Only now, when it’s too late and when the word “tax” has been so stretched, perverted and abused by the SCOTASS (when it no longer matters) do these idiots finally happen upon the bald-faced lies of this administration (just one more in the constant stream of ridiculous and intellectually offensive lies that have poured out the Dog-Eater and his administration).

    Thanks for nothing, MSM slime. When it could have mattered, you couldn’t be bothered. When the point is rendered moot and our Constitutional Republic strangled to death you become courageous truth-tellers.

    NOte AGAIN: Lew says that only those that can afford to buy insurance and don’t will be subject to the penalty. That’s important. because, now who gets to decide who can afford it? Sounds like income re-distribution to me.

    Notice how pathological liars work – They sit there with an insipid, effete smile on their face[s] and continue the shucking and jiving lie because they “think” [“think” used very loosely for the highly dubious process they are attempting here] that they “know” there will be no consequences….

    i understand what they are saying.. however, as more and more
    people cannot afford health insurance, more and more “penalties”
    will be inflicted upon the masses, ergo, DICTATORSHIP will be as
    easy snapping WONES fingers.. /s/


  • What is amusing about what Lew is saying is, the poor are freeloaders. The rich, they will either buy a policy, or pay for their health costs out of their own pocket, and most will just get the insurance because they are smart and know it is cheaper in the long run to have a policy.

    Lew is saying the freeloaders, those that cant afford the insurance, they have to pay their fair share.

    We are saying that the poor, have options already to get medical care, but to tax others, if they have insurance or not, is wrong.

  • 3-rd Trimester Obama

    Obama is attacking the freeloading poor AND the job creators. Now no one will vote for him. Because he is a confused liar.

  • Flintstone F.

    I think it’s really funny the way it all started, that there were 45 million people without insurance. They needed to be helped, taken care of. They were being unfairly cheated by a medical system set up for the rich.

    Now, they’re the freeloaders who are going to be punished for being “irresponsible.”

    Funny too how liberals can’t seem to see the illogical reasoning in forcing everyone to buy insurance when the government is going to be providing much of it (and eventually all of it) as a means to stop freeloaders from causing the rest of us to pay for their unhealthy lifestyle.

    Abortion: Hands of my body.

    Obamacare: Make all decisions about my body for me.

    No insurance: Medical attention needed and received. Subsidized.
    Obamacare: Medical attention needed and received. Subsidized.

    I feel like it’s really just about power and control and nothing to do with healthy living.

    They’re resigned to the idea that we are idiots so now Lew and the like stopped paying attention to the facts. Governing is simple to them, just set the controls on autopilot and ignore the people.

    THE LYING KING: Barack Obama & Democrats Lied to Americans that Obamacare Was not a Tax … Then Obama Marched His Attorney’s to the SCOTUS and Argued Obamacare was a Tax

    President Barack Obama, Democrats and their talking point minions do not get it both ways. They are so good at talking out of both sides of their mouths, but not this time. Obama does not get to lie to America and say Obamacare was not a tax and then sent his legal eagles to the Supreme Court and argue just the opposite that Obamacare was a tax to get it ruled Constitutional.

    It was not a matter of Barack Obama and Democrats not being able to sell the healthcare bill. They tried mightily to do so and failed. The problem was and still is that ‘We the People” do not like the law, it has nothing to do with the message. According to the most recent Rasmussen poll, 54% of Americans favor repealing Obamacare Obamatax, while only 39% support it. Imagine, just imagine if Obama and Democrats called Obamacare a tax and then passed it on party lines against the will of the people. The 2010 midterms would have been an even greater shellacking than they were.

    Are you America going to take being lied to? It takes a really “snakey” President to tell “We the People” one thing and they argue the exact opposite point to the Courts.

    Democrats can say they want to move on all they want. The regulation in Obamacare are detrimental to business and thus jobs and the economy. It is all wrapped into one, thus to talk about Obamatax, is to talk about the economy and job growth.

    They have stood my their man and afraid they are the unreachable. To think they have the privilege, right or responsibility to vote.

    Voting is far more a privilege than a right and therefore should be entered into with care and effort. If we do not, we might loose both the “privilege” and “right.” Actually, I see it more as a responsibility rather than a right or privilege. Also, with the responsibility is the requirement to vote responsibility.

    I fear these uninformed will not take things seriously but selfishly when going to the polls.

    U.S. Navigating the Twilight Zone

    If it’s a tax only because the chief justice says it’s a tax, then that’s akin to taxation without representation, because the people didn’t elect Roberts. Only Congress, elected by the people, can enact a tax, and then only if it originates in the House of Representatives. Obamacare was introduced in the Senate, not the House; the text of the law doesn’t call the mandate a tax, so how can it be OK only because it’s a tax, according to Roberts?

    By Roberts’ logic, the federal government can now compel Americans to do anything by “taxing” us for failure to do what we’re ordered to do by the government. Taxation without representation, or extortion by taxation, either way, it is tyranny, and it violates the principles the United States was founded upon.

    Obamacare must be repealed also because its immense costs will suffocate the economy, its financial disincentives will deplete the nation’s supply of doctors and stifle medical innovation. Its tangle of bureaucratic roots will ensnare every family and destroy our ability to get the care that we want, not what bureaucratic paper-pushers want us to have.



  • JoyO

    I’m really afraid that we’ll never reach the misinformed. They won’t find out what Obamacare really is UNTIL they get their first Obamacare tax bill from the IRS (kinda like getting your first pay check and seeing how much taxes you are paying) or UNTIL their children, parents, or grandparents are refused coverage because they’re not productive members of society (i.e., younger than 18 or older than 65). But by then, we may all be living under a Progressive dictatorship that will hand out freebies until it runs out of “OTHER PEOPLE’S MONEY.”

  • 3-rd Trimester Obama

    Obviously we are being robbed and lied to, but what I don’t get is this: who benefits? Where is this money all going? The insurers are getting screwed, the poor and getting shoddy health care, the rich are going to have to deal with bureaucrats who want to euthanize the older members of their family. When all of this is implemented, how can this benefit anyone, except the Devil himself?

  • why does the headline here on GP say “Audio STUNS Lew”? I just saw the interview. Lew wasn’t stunned — he was fully prepared with all his pre-approved lies / spin / talking points.
    (aren’t they always?)

    I also don’t get the math at all.
    Penalties from 4million americans who can afford insurance but don’t buy it will somehow pay for 30million who can’t afford it?

    If I have that right, those are going to have to be some VERY STEEP penalties!

    Obviously we are being robbed and lied to, but what I don’t get is this: who benefits? Where is this money all going?

    Exactly. Don’t buy insurance from a private company and you have to pay a penalty to the government that goes into the general fund, to be used for whatever chicanery the American Socialist Superstate decides. Then you get sick and the private insurance company is forced to sell you “insurance” which means that they get stuck with the real bill.

    The despicable, lying, scumbag left tries to claim that all sickness results in people immediately bleeding to death and having to be treated at emergency rooms (without having to pay for anything – which is true of illegals and indigents, only), but health care is where the expression “get a second opinion” came from, meaning that most health care is not of the emergency nature and leaves people time to shop around.

    This whole debate has been so twisted and stupid that it boggles the mind. Especially mind-boggling is that the GOP dipsh!ts never bothered to point much of this out but merely let the Dog-Eating Retard and his lunatic junta ramble on with their incredible lies without so much as a peep or an explanation. That’s why we still have Mittens talking about how he wants to keep the “no pre-existing conditions” policy, which is beyond stupid and totally unworkable.

    “Don’t these people realize that arguing that Obamacare isn’t a tax means it is uncontitutional??”

    Don’t you get it? It’s not a tax, but it’s constitutional because the Supreme Court said it was a tax, even though it’s not a tax.

    Of course, if it is a tax, then it is not enumerated in the Constitution, therefore it cannot be a constitutional tax, but since the Supreme Court said it was constitutional, and a tax, then it is, even though it isn’t. A tax.

    Hope that clears it up for ya.

    Bottom line, the Dems get to say it’s not a tax, and it’s constitutional. “I Won!”

    Obama Chief of Staff: Time to Get Over Debate

    “It’s time now to get over the debate and implement that law,” he told CNN chief political correspondent Candy Crowley. “What the American people don’t want is, they don’t want to be taken back to the old divisive debate. They want to get on with it, and they want us to be focusing on economic growth and creating jobs.

  • Joanne

    They argued it to be a tax to get it through – that’s how they got it past the Supreme Court, but the guy is saying they just argued it that way to get it through, but really it is just a penalty. He just admitted that they lied to the Supreme Court. Are these guys total morons or what!

  • Joanne

    And then the idiot says that the taxes have gone down for the middle class, as if that gives reason to tax them more, but still refers to it as a penalty? Is this guy that stupid.

    You’re right, it’s illogical and unworkable, but “The People” (right & left) WANT IT, therefore Romney probably won’t get elected without it. The old political conundrum: say whatever you have to say to get elected, even if you know it’ll never come to pass.

    Obama’s real purpose in including this provision and promoting it so much is to create a situation where private insurance will become untenable, and he gets the “single payer system” the Dims have wanted from the beginning.

    DredRoberts ruling trumps Lew’s jabberings to the contrary.
    The oBamacare mandate is now legally a TAX:
    “The Affordable Care Act’s requirement that certain individuals pay a financial penalty for not obtaining health insurance may reasonably be characterized as a tax,” Chief Justice Roberts wrote in the majority opinion.
    Lew, or for that matter, any lefty,who disagrees with the 5-4 vote, is saying that oBamacare is unconstitutional.

    The TRUTH About Pre-Existing Conditions.

    [I’ve never had to worry about pre-existing conditions with the other 90% of American Insured’s who get their health insurance through an Employer Sponsored Group Plan. Why? Because A Federal law called HIPAA has protected them against being denied health insurance because of pre-existing conditions for more than 14 years now.

    Because Government legislators did NOT apply this law to Individual health insurance policies, you can be labeled as “uninsurable” when you apply for an individual health insurance policy if you have one or more pre-existing conditions. That being said, who should we TRULY blame for the fact that you can be denied coverage for a pre-existing condition? Is it the Insurance Company’s fault? Or are they simply following a law that was written by Government Law Makers who did not include HIPAA portability protection for the MILLIONS of American’s who purchase Health Insurance on their own in the Individual Market?]

    My family of 5 pays $1330 per month for health insurance with a 2500 per person deductible. No one unhealthy no major illnesses. just 2 50+ adults and 3 boys. This whole BS about the people freeloading without coverage is just that. This cost is a major burden on our budget. As a small business owner the people hardest hit are the self employed small business middle class and their employees. Obama says a family making 80K ought to be able to afford their own coverage well if that coverage cost 12-16K per year I beg to differ with him. I expect mine to be even more next year when our policy has to include all the “required coverage” of Obamacare.

    This whole thing is utterly ludicrous.

    One more quick comment….
    SCJ Roberts may indeed have ‘helped’ give the
    next presidency to Mitt Robbed-me.

    ## 53, 56 – Being a Democrat means you *can* have it both ways. We need to wake up to the fact that what you call “hypocrisy” is the feature of the statist system – not the bug.

    Having said that, I disagree with Jim that Lew seemed “stunned” by the audio of the SG’s oral argument. He didn’t care. He doesn’t care. There doesn’t need to be an intellectual or moral underpinning to SCOTUS opinions as far as the left is concerned. Roe proves that. Lew wasn’t stunned – he just didn’t give a fig.

    The end justified the means; that is what Lew was saying. It always does with the Left. It always will.

    It is important to call things by their appropriate names, e.g., The Affordable Care Tax Act.

    So suppose some guy decides the penalty is cheaper than health insurance. He gets very sick. He goes to the nearest insurance office and gets a policy for, say, $1000 per month. He’s already packed, so he goes from there to the Cleveland Clinic where he is treated at a cost to the insurance company of $300k. After four months, being recovered, he drops the insurance.
    The company, abiding by the no-pre-existing conditions requirements had to issue it. They’re out $296,000.
    He wins, the company, after enough folks see the smart way to get through the system, goes broke.
    Is this a bug or a feature? Clearly, it’s a feature, a necessary stop on the way to single-payer.

    Lew was stunned? All I saw was a mealy-mouthed bureaucrat continuing to lie to protect his boss’s integrity (of which we know he has none), and not even caring that everybody with eyes and ears knows he’s lying.

    Health Bill Highlights

    Page 50/section 152: The bill will provide insurance to ALL” NON -U.S.” residents, even if they are here “ILLEGALLY”.

    Page 58 and 59: The government will have real-time access to an individual’s bank account and will have …the authority to make electronic fund transfers from those accounts.

    Page 65/section 164: The plan will be subsidized (by the government) for all union members, union retirees and for community organizations (such as the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now – ACORN). ** Page 203/line 14-15: The tax imposed under this section will not be treated as a tax.

Those on Social Security will be required to attend an “end-of-life planning” seminar every five years. (Death counseling..) ** Page 429, line 13-25: The government will specify which doctors can write an end-of-life order.

    ** Finally, it is specifically stated that this bill will not apply to members of Congress.
    Yes this is a great day for America and is a BIG F***ING DEAL.. NOT!
