An interesting moment in last night’s CNN Townhall with GOP candidate Donald J. Trump occurred during his discussion of Obamacare, and his plans for an alternate health care strategy. Let’s cut to the video:
The most contentious provision of Obamacare is the mandate that everyone be covered or be subject to a fine. In fact, the legal gymnastics undergone by Chief Justice John Roberts that the mandate was actually a tax, and therefore legal, has provided Mr. Trump with the basis for his criticism of Ted Cruz as the erstwhile sponsor of Roberts during the nomination hearings.
But, here we are, in Donald’s own words saying, “I LIKE THE MANDATE.” (emphasis mine). I asked a FB friend and true Trump believer about this, and he denied Trump said anything of the kind. IKR.
A truly been a remarkable primary season, indeed.
