Video: Allen West calls SCOTUS Obamacare ruling “behavior modification through taxation”
Nancy Pelosi was asked about her opinion on the Supreme Court’s decision that the individual mandate constituted a tax after the Obama regime had been arguing that is wasn’t a tax. Nancy Pelosi basically said “who cares what it is called as long as it was upheld.” Here are her exact words:
Call it what you will—it is a step forward for America’s families. And you know what? Take yes for an answer. This is a very good thing for the American people. What you’re talking about here is Washington talk
She when on to talk about how the Supreme Court ruling that the mandate was a tax was a “technical term” and it shouldn’t really mean anything to the American people. Basically she was dodging the question because she knows middle class families will be hardest hit by this and she knows Barack Obama promised not to raise taxes on the middle class. But in her eyes the end justifies the means so who cares what the mandate is called.
Allen West cares and below is a video of an interview he conducted after Nancy Pelosi made her comments where he calls her delusional and asks if she would feel the same way of the government ordered the people to buy a 9mm Glock or face a tax penalty. He goes on to call this a “horrific decision” by the Supreme Court and states that it is “behavior modification by way of taxation.”
This is a must watch so here it is:
