Obama Snafu on Stephanopoulos

The only bit of buzz that came out of Obama’s Fox-less tour of the (yawn) Sunday shows was this exchange between Obama and former Clintonista George Stephanopoulos on the issue of whether or not the mandatory insurance fine provision in the Baucus Plan adds up to a big tax increase:

Of course, this from the same guy who said no family making under $250,000 a year will see a tax increase, but will allow the Bush tax-cuts to expire in 2011, increasing EVERYONE’s taxes if they pay them.  As a public school teacher, I will not be making close to $250,000 in 2011, but my taxes will necessarily go up.  So I tend not to trust Obama on taxes mostly because Obama doesn’t really understand the whole tax-increase concept thing, which is evident from his unscripted moment here on Stephanopoulos’ show:  situation normal, all f*&%ed up in Washington.
