In a brief response to the Supreme Court's decision to uphold most of President Obama's sweeping health care law, GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney reiterated his promise to repeal ObamaCare if he is elected president, saying that it "was a bad law yesterday, and it's bad law today" because it raises taxes and cuts Medicare. "What the Supreme Court did not do on its last day in session, I will do in my first day in office." So far, Romney has not specified how he would specifically go about repealing the law, including the controversial individual mandate, the central provision of the Affordable Care Act, which requires that most Americans acquire insurance or pay a fine.
