George Stephanopoulos Gets Under Obama's Skin by Reading the Definition of "Tax" to Him - Video 9/20/09
Here is video of President Obama yesterday on "This Week" arguing with host George Stephanopoulos about the meaning of "tax increase." Stephanopoulos even read the definition of "tax" from the Merriam-Webster dictionary! That seemed to get under Obama's skin. He told George that the fact he looked it up in the dictionary showed he was "stretching a bit."
Stephanopoulos had asked Obama how Obama's Health Plan is not a tax - including the requirement that people buy health insurance and levying a fine if you don't. I don't think Obama convinced him.
