Tax Reform, The Health Care Trojan Horse

After months of unsuccessful efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA), it may appear that Congress has shifted priorities to reforming the U.S. tax code.


However, the futures of tax reform and health care are linked in a way that will devastate working families, people with disabilities, seniors, and more.

To pay for the deficits created by the current tax plan, Medicaid would be cut by more than $1 trillion over the next 10 years,  more than that proposed under Graham-Cassidy or the AHCA.


The pay-as-you-go rule, also known as PAYGO, passed in 2010, means mandatory cuts elsewhere—in this case, $28 billion would get automatically slashed from Medicare early next year (and be ongoing).
