Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi Condemns Cynical Senate Republican Plan To Raise Taxes On Middle Class While Leaving 13 Million More Americans Without Health Coverage

Press Release

Washington, DC – Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi today released the following statement in response to the Senate Republican tax plan:

“I was already opposed to the Republican tax plans based on their middle-class tax hikes and huge costs, but the new provisions of the Mitch McConnell plan would devastate our health care system. By repealing key sections of the Affordable Care Act and slashing health care funding, this plan would take health coverage away from 13 million Americans while causing premiums to surge by an average of 10 percent per year over the next decade. I oppose the Republican plan because working families can’t afford to have their taxes raised or their health care cut, and this bill does both.”
