Congressional Republicans Working On Plan To Prevent IRS From Enforcing ACA’s Individual Mandate.

July 5, 2017


The New York Times  (7/3, Pear, Subscription Publication) reported that congressional Republicans are moving to stop the IRS from enforcing the ACA’s requirement that most Americans have health insurance or pay a tax penalty. While the plan “is separate from Republican efforts to repeal the health care law, and appears more likely to be adopted because it would be written into the annual spending bill for the Treasury and the I.R.S.,” it “has a similar purpose: to weaken the health law that President Trump and Republicans in Congress want to dismantle.” In the event that the ACA repeal effort comes up short, the House Appropriations Committee “has drafted a provision to stop the I.R.S. from enforcing the mandate.” The provision is “included in an appropriations bill that was approved on Thursday by the Subcommittee on Financial Services and General Government.”
