Letter: Support for Repeal of the “Cadillac Tax”Federal Budget
On February 7, 2017, First Focus submitted a joint letter to the Senate and House of Representatives urging Congress to prioritize investments in children’s programs, in support of your reintroduction of S. 58/H.R. 173, the Middle Class Health Benefits Tax Repeal Act of 2017. This legislation repeals the “Cadillac Tax,” which is a 40 percent excise tax on the cost of employer-sponsored health coverage that exceeds a certain and rather arbitrary premium benefits threshold of $10,800 for self-only coverage and $29,100 for family coverage in 2020.
