As Twitchy reported yesterday, former Speaker Nancy Pelosi appeared on “Meet the Press.” She joined other democrats in a failed attempt to spin away the fact that the mandate in Obamacare is a tax. She said that it isn’t a tax (after stumbling and almost saying the dreaded T-word aloud) and that it’s just a little penalty, free riders. Suck it up!
Turns out I didn't pay taxes last year. It was just a "penalty" for declining to not earn income.—

Twitter, as always, was at the ready to provide some teachable moments to the intelligence-deficient like Ms. Pelosi.
