In this video, from April 2010, Romney talks about how he likes the similarities Obama’s health care reform law has with his own in Massachusetts, including the individual mandate.

This, as well as the fact that he touted his health care reforms (individual mandate included), wanted them adopted by the federal government and that he did not consider the mandate penalty a tax, contradicts his current position that the individual mandate is unconstitutional and that it is a tax.
