The Court voted to uphold the individual mandate to purchase health insurance, as a tax, though not as a “penalty,” and that difference caused some confusion on air, and on Twitter.

And Republican members of Congress who Twitter-boasted about the overturning of the individual mandate prematurely — we’re just speculating that they they got the wrong information from Fox News — later deleted their tweets (thank goodness for screengrabs…)
