|Now we've come full circle in all the 'penalty' vs 'tax' talk. Mitt Romney has spoken and clearly affirmed that the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate is a tax, directly contradicting his senior adviser, Eric Fehrnstrom, who had said earlier this week that it was a penalty. Romney tried to explain the contradiction by noting in an interview with CBS News that it was all about the Supreme Court's majority opinion. 'While I agreed with the dissent, that's taken over by the fact that the majority of the court said it's a tax, and therefore it is a tax. They have spoken. There's no way around that,' Romney said.|
