CU Letter to U.S. Senate Opposing Repealing the Individual Mandate through the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

Consumers Union, the policy arm of nonprofit Consumer Reports, writes to express our strong opposition to the repeal of the individual health coverage mandate through the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. As an organization whose founding principles include ensuring access to quality, affordable health coverage and care for all, we believe the repeal of the individual mandate would jeopardize both the health and financial security of American families.
