Romney Used to Call His Penalty a Tax
JULY 06, 2012
“Four months before Mitt Romney signed his health care plan into law in Massachusetts in 2006, he told a conservative group that the state’s tax code would be the hammer that would make the plan work. For those who refused to comply with the state’s mandate to buy health insurance, he said in remarks to the Heritage Foundation, ‘they are going to lose their personal tax exemption.’ ‘We will withhold any of their tax refund,’ he said.” (New York Times)
