Romney Differs With His Own Campaign On Whether The Mandate Penalty Is A Tax

Posted by | July 4, 2012 13:58 | Filed under: Top Stories

Advisers Eric Fehrnstrom and Andrea Saul say Romney believes it’s a penalty, not a tax. Romney now has directly contradicted them.

Q: Do you now believe that it is a tax at the federal level, that the Supreme Court has said it’s a tax, so it is a tax?

ROMNEY: Well, I said that I agreed with the dissent. And the dissent made it very clear that they felt it was unconstitutional. But the dissent lost — it’s in the minority. And so now the Supreme Court has spoken. And while I agreed with the dissent, that’s taken over by the fact that the majority of the Court said it is a tax, and therefore it is a tax. They have spoken. There is no way around that.
