As Working Families Continue to Struggle, Big Corporations and the Very Wealthy Reap the Benefits of Tax Law

Washington, DC – On Tax Day, Health Care for America Now Co-Directors Ethan Rome and Margarida Jorge released the following statement:

“While large corporations and the very wealthy are rewarded with big tax breaks from the Trump-Republican tax giveaway, working families have been hit hard. The Republicans gave massive tax cuts to drug makers and health insurance companies while forcing poor and middle-class families to foot the bill with higher taxes, increased premiums, and proposed cuts to critical health care programs like Medicaid and Medicare. This is why the tax law is so unpopular and why people across the country are fighting for a tax system where everyone pays their fair share. Republicans in Congress will hear their message loud and clear in November.”

Health Care for America Now (HCAN) is the national grassroots coalition that ran a $60 million five-and-a-half year campaign from 2008-2013 to pass, protect, and promote the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and protect Medicare and Medicaid. HCAN has come back together to fight the Republicans’ all-out effort to take away America’s health care and put people at the mercy of the health insurance companies again.
