40 Organizations Send Letter to Senate Opposing Tax Cuts

November 29, 2017

Consumer Voice has joined 40 organizations in a letter to the US Senate opposing tax cuts that would jeopardize health care for older adults and people with disabilities. The tax bills under consideration in the House and Senate would increase the national debt by $1.5 trillion.  In doing so, there would be a revenue shortfall and programs like Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security could see cuts.  The Senate tax plan would repeal the individual mandate in the Affordable Care Act (ACA), leaving 13 million people uninsured.  Repealing the mandate would raise the costs of insurance for people with preexisting and chronic conditions.
