Ramesh Ponnuru notes that Senator Marco Rubio's statement on Obama's adjusted mandate "seems to suggest that this particular battle is over even if the war over Obamacare continues."
Does Rubio think Obama's new policy is acceptable? "No," Rubio spokesman Alex Conant writes in an email to TWS. "Reaffirming religious freedoms is good, but the policy is unconstitutional and endemic of why we must repeal Obamacare."
Obama's policy "violates religious freedoms," Conant added. Rubio still hopes the Senate will act on one of the bills introduced to reverse the administration's policy.
