Not Shocking: Media Ignores Obama Tax Confusion

5 Jul 2012, 10:06 AM PDT 7 post a comment

The current top headline on Memeorandum is "Romney's Tax Confusion." This morning on CNN I spoke with Don Lemon about the Romney camp's earlier remark on the tax/mandate battle and Romney's reported "confusion." Why doesn't anyone want to ask about President Obama's apparent confusion?

The Obama administration argued that the health care law was a mandate, then their solicitor general argued (poorly) before the Supreme Court that it was a tax. Now the administration has flipped again and is back to arguing that it's a mandate. In a bizarre twist, Obama and congressional Democrat leadership are publicly contradicting the Supreme Court's ruling and arguing against the Constitutionality of they're own law. How's that for confusion?
The President also promised that the middle class would not be slammed with higher taxes for the sake of health care.
