TELL CONGRESS: Oppose the Tax Bill

Over the past year, people across America made their voice heard and protected the health care of millions. Now, Congress is trying to sneak health care repeal provisions into their tax bill to pay for massive tax cuts for the wealthiest.

Call your members of Congress, tell them to oppose the tax bill.


  • Experts estimate 13 million people would lose health coverage and premiums would go up 10 percent if the tax bill passes.
  • Analysis shows families would see an average of nearly $2,000 in premium increases, and people with preexisting conditions could be priced out of their care.
  • The tax bill in Congress would trigger $25 billion in Medicare cuts.
  • The House-passed tax bill eliminates the medical expense deduction, which helps low- and middle-income families afford long-term care and services related to chronic illnesses.
  • Costs for small businesses would increase dramtically under the plan being considered.
