Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney told CBS’s “This
Morning” on Thursday that the Supreme Court has ruled that Obamacare is a
tax, “so it’s a tax,” while the health care mandate he signed into law
as governor of Massachusetts is a “penalty.”

Romney said both Obamacare and Romneycare should now be considered constitutional.

“The Supreme Court has the final word, and their final word is that
Obamacare is a tax. So it’s a tax. They decided it was constitutional,
so it’s a tax and it’s constitutional. That’s the final word. That’s
what it is,” Romney said.

“Now, I agree with the dissent–I would have taken a different course,
but the dissent wasn’t in the majority. The majority has ruled, and
their rule is final,” he said.

“But does that mean that the mandate in the state of Massachusetts
under your health care law also is a tax–and that you raised taxes as
governor?” CBS News chief political correspondent Jan Crawford asked.
