Chamber Letter in Support of 2017 House Reconciliation Legislative Recommendations

Tuesday, March 7, 2017 - 5:45pm

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce today sent a letter to Committee Chairmen Greg Walden and Kevin Brady and Ranking Members Frank Pallone and Richard Neal in support of the 2017 House Reconciliation Legislative Recommendations. Critically important provisions in the Recommendations repeal a substantial number of the most harmful provisions in the Affordable Care Act: the health insurance tax, the medical device tax, and the tax on prescription medications; restrictions on the use and limitations on contributions to health savings accounts and flexible spending accounts; and the penalties associated with the employer mandate.
