Disastrous Trump Tax Cuts Laid the Groundwork for Republicans to Repeal Health Care for Millions of Americans
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals issued a decision that the individual mandate of the Affordable Care Act is unconstitutional, basing their ruling on a provision of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
The following statement is from Tax March Campaign Director Dana Bye:
“Today’s decision in the Health Care Repeal Lawsuit is dangerous evidence of just how far-reaching the damage of the Trump tax scam really is. The tax scam goes beyond giving wealthy Americans a tax break, beyond increasing taxes on working people — today, Trump’s tax scam threatens the health care of hundreds of millions of people whose lives depend on access to the quality, affordable health care they receive through the Affordable Care Act.
If you need proof that the Trump tax cuts need to be repealed, look no further: You can now add threatening health care for every senior, child, veteran, rural American, student, woman, person of color — you name it — protected under the Affordable Care Act to the Trump tax scam’s path of destruction. It’s time to repeal this disastrous law: for the sake of rebuilding our economy, and to safeguard the health care system that protects hundreds of millions of people.”
