Obamacare Reminder

In light of the SCOTUS ruling on Obamacare today it might be worth reviewing the denial by Obama that it is not a tax.
Also maybe it's time to revisit his vow not to raise taxes on families making less than $250,000 a year.

Obama Renews Vow of No Middle-Class Tax Increase

WASHINGTON — The White House tried Monday to douse speculation that it might raise taxes on the middle class in violation of President Obama’s campaign promise, just a day after two of his top economic advisers left the door open to such a move to rein in spiraling deficits.
Mr. Obama told his economic team in a meeting at the White House that he intended to stand by his promise not to increase taxes on families making less than $250,000, aides said. He then sent his spokesman out to repeat that message in front of the television cameras.
“The president made a commitment in the campaign. He’s clear about that commitment, and he’s going to keep it,” said Robert Gibbs, the White House press secretary.
 That's alright though cause as the DNC executive director says.
