Individual Mandate Repeal Graphics

Update: December 20, 2017

Today Congress passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.  We are of course disappointed that we were not ultimately able to stop this bill.  But because of your advocacy, many of the most harmful tax provisions for people with disabilities were not included in the final bill.  We remain concerned that Congress will next turn to cutting Medicaid, Medicare and other critical programs to pay for the tax bill.  But again, your efforts to educate members of Congress and the public about how important Medicaid is to people with disabilities will help us in the next fight.  Thank your hard work, and rest up for what's ahead.

You can get more information on the final bill here or in this chart of major provisions here.
