Americans for Tax Reform WILL RATE a vote on the motion to proceed to H.R. 1628 a pro-taxpayer vote

ATR urges a YES vote

Later this week, Senators will have the opportunity to fulfill their promise to the American people and repeal Obamacare by voting yes on the motion to proceed to the House passed American Health Care Act (H.R. 1628). ATR urges a "yes" vote on the motion to proceed to AHCA.

When it was signed into law, Obamacare imposed one trillion dollars in higher taxes on the American people. These taxes directly harm middle class families and small businesses across the country.

“Abolishing Obamacare ends a collection of roughly 20 taxes and that reduces total taxes on all Americans by one trillion dollars over a decade,” said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform. “Every step towards ending all, most or some of those taxes is helpful to taxpayers and other living things. A no vote on proceeding closes the door on tax reduction as well as reforming health care by expanding Health Savings Accounts and Flexible Savings Accounts.”

By voting “yes” on the motion to proceed, Senators have an opportunity to repeal the following taxes:

-Obamacare’s Individual Mandate Tax which hits 8 million Americans each year.

-Obamacare’s Employer Mandate Tax.

-Obamacare’s Medicine Cabinet Tax which hits 20 million Americans with Health Savings Accounts and 30 million Americans with Flexible Spending Accounts.

-Obamacare’s Flexible Spending Account tax on 30 million Americans.

-Obamacare’s Chronic Care Tax on 10 million Americans with high out of pocket medical expenses.

-Obamacare’s HSA withdrawal tax.

-Obamacare’s 10% excise tax on small businesses with indoor tanning services.

-Obamacare’s health insurance tax.

-Obamacare’s 3.8 percent net investment income tax on capital gains.

-Obamacare’s 0.9 percent Medicare Payroll tax.

-Obamacare’s medical device tax.

-Obamacare’s tax on prescription medicine.

-Obamacare’s tax on retiree prescription drug coverage.

-Obamacare’s “Cadillac tax” on employer provided health insurance.
