Workplace Fairness joins workers' rights organizations in supporting stopping The Health Insurance Tax.
The Health Insurance Tax will take a toll on hardworking Americans by increasing health care costs by $500 a year per family, with more than half the total cost falling on those making less than $50,000. Congress needs to act now to Stop The Health Insurance Tax.
In 2014, tens of millions of Americans saw an increase in their health insurance premiums as a result of the HIT tax being included in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The HIT takes aim at Main Street America, hitting the pocketbooks of working families, stifling small business job creation and impacting our most vulnerable citizens: the poor and seniors.
Congress must act to provide relief from this harmful and poorly constructed tax. Twice they have some together to suspend the HIT – for 2017 and 2019. While this is a welcome and critical first step, Americans need relief now and for the future.
Stop the HIT, Congress must prioritize efforts to provide relief from the HIT now, before it’s too late.-- The Stop The HIT Coalition
