OBAMA: I mean, what --


OBAMA: If what you're saying --

STEPHANOPOULOS: I wanted to check for myself. Your critics say it is a tax increase.

OBAMA: My critics say everything's a tax increase! My critics say that I'm taking over, uhh, every sector of the economy. You know that. Uh, eh, eh, eh, eh... Look, we can have a legitimate debate about whether or not we're going to have an individual mandate or not, but --

STEPHANOPOULOS: You reject that it's a tax increase?

OBAMA: I absolutely reject that notion. </div></div>

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: THE REGIME'S POSITION AS OF 07/16/2010</div><div class="ubbcode-body">WASHINGTON — When Congress required most Americans to obtain health insurance or pay a penalty, Democrats denied that they were creating a new tax. But in court, the Obama administration and its allies now defend the requirement as an exercise of the government’s “power to lay and collect taxes.”

And that power, they say, is even more sweeping than the federal power to regulate interstate commerce.

Administration officials say the tax argument is a linchpin of their legal case in defense of the health care overhaul and its individual mandate, now being challenged in court by more than 20 states and several private organizations.

Under the legislation signed by President Obama in March, most Americans will have to maintain “minimum essential coverage” starting in 2014. Many people will be eligible for federal subsidies to help them pay premiums.

In a brief defending the law, the Justice Department says the requirement for people to carry insurance or pay the penalty is “a valid exercise” of Congress’s power to impose taxes. </div></div>

They can spin it all they want. When the government takes money from the citizens by force, it is a tax.

It is whatever the party says it is.

Today that is.

Depending on what your definition of "IS" is.
