President Obama’s “Principles”

Presented here entirely without comment are four quotes from the Obama Administration:

  1. Barack Obama, July 2012: “It’s less a tax or a penalty than it is a principle.”
  2. Barack Obama, September 2009: “For us to say that you’ve got to take a responsibility to get health insurance is absolutely not a tax increase.”
  3. Obama Administration’s Justice Department, January 2012: “The Minimum Coverage Provision Operates As A Tax Law” (emphasis original)
  4. Rahm Emanuel, June 2009: “The only non-negotiable principle here is success.  Everything else is negotiable.”
