House GOP Weighs Repeal of Health Mandate in Tax Bill

Posted on Thursday, November 9, 2017 7:16 PM

The Republicans are trying to repeal the ObamaCare tenet that all people have insurance or face a financial penalty.  This is a step that is being pushed by President Trump, and has been since his campaign.

“The Congressional Budget Office has estimated that repealing the individual mandate would save $416 Billion over a decade.  That’s because without it, fewer people would enroll in Medicaid or buy federally subsidized coverage on insurance exchanges.  The money represents a tempting revenue source for GOP tax writers whose plan for extensive tax cuts would add an estimated $1.5 trillion to the nation’s debt over 10 years.”
