Stephanopoulos - But Mr. President, if you make the people pay the government money isn't that at tax?

Barack Obama - George, you don't seem to be hearing me.

Stephanopoulos - But Mr. President how is it not a tax.

Barack Obama - George, it's not a tax because I say it isn't a tax.

Try some context.

Stephanopoulos was claiming that a law requiring everyone to be insured (and not necessarily by an insurance company run by the government) is a "tax."  No matter how you slice it, Stephanopoulos can't read the dictionary he apparently owns.

No--it's not a tax. It's simply a dictate.
