U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) issued the following statement regarding repealing the individual mandate tax as part of the Senate's tax reform plan:

"The individual mandate is based on a flawed premise that the federal government should force Americans to buy an overpriced health insurance plan even if they don't want it, and can't afford it. Including the repeal of the tax penalty in our pro-growth tax reform bill gives direct relief to hard-working Pennsylvanians and assists in making permanent desperately needed changes to our outdated tax code so American businesses can be globally competitive once again."
