Obama Care, a Tax or a Fee? This is a two-sided sword. How many states and especially cities charge us all a fee for this or that claiming that they can do this because it’s not a tax. Taxes require some kind of legislative or voter approval. But fees are levied on us with the stroke of a pen. You all know what kind of fees I’m talking about. Fees that we all know are really taxes. California uses this to supplement their budget.
If the Supreme Court rules that Obama care is actually a tax I suspect there will be lawsuits against States and Cities to recover billions of illegally collected fees. If the Court rules it is not a tax, Obama Care wins and the States win but we lose. I think we all know which way this is going to end up.
