Murkowski Supports Repealing Obamacare Mandate

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) says she supports GOP efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate, Politico reports.

Said Murkowski: “I have always supported the freedom to choose. I believe that the federal government should not force anyone to buy something they do not wish to buy, in order to avoid being taxed.”

“Murkowski’s renewed support for repealing the mandate — after repeatedly opposing her party’s Obamacare repeal bills this year — may be a boon for Senate Republicans’ tax legislation, which includes mandate repeal and is expected to be taken up on the Senate floor next week.”
