We need your help to stop the harmful tax plan that is moving very quickly. Congress may vote as early as Monday on a tax plan that will reduce federal revenues so much that they are all but certain to move to cut critical programs for people with disabilities to pay for the tax cuts. In fact, several Members of Congress have been promised that Medicaid and other programs will be cut next year if Congress votes for a bill that increases the deficit.
The tax plan also includes repeal of the "individual mandate" that requires people to obtain health care coverage or face penalties. This will result in nearly 13 million people losing health coverage and will increase premiums by 10% for people buying insurance on the health insurance exchange. The individual mandate is a critical piece of the complex system of incentives and penalties created by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and repealing it would undermine the entire law.
Thank you for your advocacy!
