When is a Tax not a Tax?

When a politician decides that it is not one.  Romney is confused about the issue as Prof. Donald Boudreaux explains:

Open Letter to Mitt Romney

"If you keep your promise to impose countervailing duties on imports from China you will thereby break your promise to not raise taxes on the American people. (Americans who buy imports from China are, after all, American people.) But if you keep your promise to not raise taxes on the American people, you must – as I hope you will – break your promise to punitively tax those many Americans who buy imports from China."
