Sens. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, and Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., introduced legislation that would remove the individual mandate, a focal point of the Affordable Care Act's aim of expanding health care coverage. The bill "strikes the individual mandate, so we can instead find ways of providing people with health care, but in a manner that doesn't run counter to our constitutional framework of limited government," Hatch said.
