One Response to Then: “It’s not a tax” Now: “It’s a tax”

    Yeah, whenever anyone challenges something done by members of Congress, they pretend that their power to tax has been challenged and instead shout down the imaginary argument.

    It must be reflexive by now…

    Officer: Sir, do you know how fast you were driving back there?
    Congressperson: How DARE you challenge my power to tax!

    Alex Trebek: In the form of a question please, Representative.
    CP: OK: ‘Are you challenging my power to tax, you sonnofabitch?”

    Psychologist: Tell me what you see in this ink blot?
    CP: I see someone challenging my power to tax!

    Gozer: Are you…a god?
    CP: Does a god have the power to tax?
