CBS interview: Mitt Romney says Chief Justice John Roberts' health care ruling 'not accurate' (+video)

CBS News Chief Political Correspondent Jan Crawford reports in an exclusive interview:
Mitt Romney says Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts erred in his conclusions in upholding the individual mandate in President Obama's signature health care reform law.
In the landmark ruling, Roberts sided with liberal justices, writing that people who don't buy health insurance under the measure's provisions would be hit with an extra tax, and Congress clearly has the right to levy taxes.
But in an exclusive interview at Romney's New Hampshire vacation home Wednesday, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee told CBS News Chief Political Correspondent Jan Crawford he views the mandate as a tax — because the high court said so — even though he feels Roberts' decision to uphold the law wasn't "accurate" or "appropriate."
