ATLANTA (AP) - Mitt Romney says he hopes the Supreme Court does
"the right thing" and strikes down President Barack Obama's health care overhaul.

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee tells donors at a fundraising reception in Atlanta that the health care law hurts small businesses and costs too much.

The Supreme Court is expected to rule on the law's constitutionality later this month.

Romney said Monday that he hopes the justices, in his words, "do the right thing and turn this thing down."

As Massachusetts governor, Romney signed into law a measure that forces state residents to purchase health insurance. The so-called
individual mandate is at the heart of the Supreme Court case.

The Romney campaign says it raised more than $3 million Monday night in Georgia.
