Quotes-start.png "The naked opportunism of the administration's tax argument is one reason that US District Judge Henry Hudson in Virginia ruled the individual mandate unconstitutional. Unpersuaded that the penalty "is a bona fide revenue-raising measure enacted under the taxing power of Congress," he cites the Supreme Court for the proposition that the words "tax" and "penalty" aren't interchangeable and that a penalty "cannot be converted into a tax by the simple expedient of calling it such." (Sorry, Mr. Holder.)" Quotes-end.png
