Healthcare reform may have passed, but the fight over the individual mandate is still alive.
Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) tweeted today about the National Federation of Independent Business's (NFIB) decision to join the lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the mandate:
I commend @NFIB, and those states, including Utah, for challenging this unconstitutional Washington mandate: http://bit.ly/caLLIp #hcr
Congress overstepped its legal authority by telling Utahns and other Americans that they must buy health insurance or else. #hcr
Supporters of the mandate will point out that Hatch himself supported a similar proposal in 1993. See Hatch explain that seeming contradiction in the video below, starting at about at 5:10 mark.
