I have been saying that if they had used the word "tax" those that voted for it would have committed political suicide, but that a "Tax" it was. a horse by any other name is still a horse...
I agree it is a tax, and I also agree that any revenue measure should originate in the house. Now, are those that be going to file a suit in consideration of that??? I expect that will depend on who wins and who looses, and by how much, in November.
