The White House, having persuaded the Supreme Court to approve their health care takeover as a tax, are shamelessly pretending that they never called it a tax:

That’s the Obama campaign press secretary saying:

Review the court transcripts, Ryan. At no point did Verrilli or any of the government lawyers say that it was a tax.

Which, of course, is an out-and-out lie. It wasn’t just Verrilli in oral arguments; it was also in the briefs, not to mention countless Democratic statements.


UPDATE: More heh.
