34,030 Maine households are currently stuck paying Obamacare’s individual mandate tax, an average tax of $455 per household. 79% of these households have income of under $50,000.
The Graham-Cassidy bill repeals Obamacare’s individual mandate tax. If Senator Collins votes YES on Graham-Cassidy, Maine families will no longer be stuck paying this tax. A NO vote means Maine families will continue to get stuck with this tax, simply for their choice to not purchase Obamacare.
Americans for Tax Reform encourages Senator Collins to vote YES on Graham-Cassidy.

The individual mandate tax is one of many Obamacare taxes that violate Obama’s “firm pledge” not to raise any form of tax on any American making less than $250,000 per year. Documentation of Obama’s shattered promise can be found here. Senators voting NO on Graham-Cassidy are voting to continue to stick their constituents with this tax.
