For Immediate Release
Washington, D.C. – Bipartisan legislation to repeal the ACA’s health insurance tax (HIT) has reached 218 co-sponsors, a majority of the U.S. House of Representatives. The legislation, introduced by Representatives Charles Boustany (R-LA 3) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ 9), would protect millions of families, seniors, small business owners, and states from higher costs imposed by the tax. As support continues to build, reaching 218 co-sponsors is an important milestone that adds to the growing momentum in Congress to repeal the HIT.
AHIP President and CEO Karen Ignagni issued the following statement in response:
“Repealing the health insurance tax is a practical solution that would benefit millions of families and small business owners. The health insurance tax makes coverage more expensive and it should be repealed.”
