The Senate's Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will finally repeal the Obamacare individual mandate tax. Repeal of this Obamacare tax will be of great help to middle-class Maine households. Americans for Tax Reform urges Sen. Susan Collins to vote YES.

According to official IRS data, middle-class Maine households will benefit greatly from a Collins YES vote. 

  • If Sen. Susan Collins votes YES on the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act 34,030 Maine households will no longer be stuck paying Obamacare’s individual mandate tax
  • In 2015, these Maine households had to pay the IRS $15,490,000 for choosing not to purchase Obamacare, an average tax penalty of $455 per household
  • 79% of Maine households paying this tax make less than $50,000 per year
  • If Sen. Collins votes NO, Mainers will be forced to pay Obamacare’s individual mandate tax simply for choosing not to purchase Obamacare.


Contact Senator Collins' office and urge her to vote YES on the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
