Hard to Keep Track

So first Obama campaigned against a mandate.  Then, once elected, he passes a mandate.

Campaigning, Obama said he would not raise taxes on the middle class. He emphatically argued the mandate was not a tax. Then his administration argued that it was a tax to to the Supreme Court. Then the Supreme Court agreed, saying the mandate was only constitutional because it was a tax. 

Now the Obama administration is back to arguing the mandate is not a tax.
