Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney made some comments this week that some say reversed his campaign’s view that the health care reform law’s individual mandate is a tax, not a penalty. The distinction is important to Romney’s campaign because as governor of Massachusetts he signed into law a health care bill that included a mandate, which has been considered a penalty, not a tax. Basically, Romney is now saying that the law he signed isn’t a tax, but the law President Obama signed is. “Well, the Supreme Court has the final word,” Romney said. “And their final word is that Obamacare is a tax. So it’s a tax.” Romney said the mandate is a tax because the majority of justices on the Court say so, however, he didn’t specifically agree with them.
