How long before the leftwing whack jobs call this torture? A man walks into a bar at the VFW and orders a beer. He is declined. He then proceeds to the front lawn of the VFW, lowers the American flag, and burns it. What happened next was probably the most effective form of justice that could be levied - PEER ACCOUNTABILITY.

A veteran in the hall tracks down the man a couple days later and duct tapes him to the pole.

Finally some good news.

You read that one right. There's also a handwritten letter (one simple page) from Chief of staff for the Joint Committee on Taxation, Thomas Barthold, to Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.)who was seeking clarity on the matter. At issue was whether or not, under Obamacare, the IRS would be able to go after citizens who do not have healthcare coverage.

Made available on Friday the 25th, was a handwritten ONE PAGE note from Barthold to Ensign that confirmed Ensign's inquiry about. This one page says far more than the 1300 pages in HR 3200 in my opinion. Almost makes you wish that every bill passed be no more than one page and handwritten, doesn't it?

THE POLITICO reported on Thursday that Barthold had some pretty bold words for Ensign, who was calling this "individual mandate" a tax.
The remarks Thursday from the committee's chief of staff, Thomas Barthold, seems to further weaken President Barack Obama's contention last week that the individual mandate penalty, which could go as high as $1,900, is not a tax increase.

Under questioning from Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.), Barthold said the IRS would "take you to court and undertake normal collection proceedings."
It would seem to me that if the IRS is going after someone for not paying them, it's a tax. If you talk to the left, to include Obama, the individual mandate is not a tax.

Now, contrast what you know to be true based on Barthold's letter with what Barack Obama said to George Stephanopolous just last week. If you don't have time to watch the entire five-plus minutes, fast forward to the three minute mark for the direct contradiction from Obama, who says the individual mandate is not a tax.

What do you call something that the IRS can throw you into jail and fine you for not paying?

George, can you hand me that dictionary?
