Is It a Tax?

Is the "individual mandate" a tax increase? My answer: I don't care. It may be un-American or something, but I don't think tax increases, even on the middle class, are necessarily a bad thing.

And even after 3+ years in office, Obama has offered no comprehensive tax policy of his own. He has temporary patchwork tax cuts to "stimulate the economy" and is still talking about tinkering with various parts of the Bush tax cuts. I cannot remember a president in my lifetime who has not even tried to promote some sort of overall tax policy.
