Mitt Romney and the Republicans have spent the past year or two yelling that the Affordable Care Act is “unconstitutional” and that the Supreme Court would throw the thing out. That didn’t happen. ‘ObamaCare’ was found to be constitutional and was upheld. It’s the law of the land. So, the Right-Wing, feeling the sting of defeat, immediately segued into their new bogus talking point: ObamaCare is a massive tax hike on the middle class and those mythic job creators.
The idea that the Affordable Care Act represents a tax hike on average Americans, and that the individual mandate includes a penalty, is a complete fabrication. Okay, it’s another blatant Republican lie.
