ObamaCare is still the big story and I imagine it will be through the election.
President Obama has to be pleased with the Supreme Court‘s ruling last Thursday, except for the fact they ruled it was constitutional as long as it is in the form of a tax.
The president has not only spent close to four years arguing that it is not a tax, but more generally promised not to raise taxes on anyone making less than $250,000 per year.
On Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, White House Chief of Staff Jacob Lew tried to argue the case in such defiance of previous administration statements that Wallace was forced to say: “If it walks, looks, and quacks like a duck, it’s a duck.”

Off air today Dave was trying to convince Klose that there was a Viagra commercial involving a hot tub and a father-in-law. It sounded 100% creepy, but Dave doesn’t think it was a spoof or parody. I looked it up on the YouTubes but all I could find was this equally creepy Viva Viagra spot.
