Leaders in the U.S. House recently released a tax plan that would dramatically shape tax and spending policy for decades to come. This tax plan is moving extremely rapidly. The House is expected to vote the week of November 13 and the Senate is expected to vote on its tax plan after Thanksgiving.
When most people hear about the tax reform, their eyes glaze over. But the decisions that Congress makes about taxes are moral decisions with enormous consequences. If you want to know about the values and priorities of a nation, just take a look at that nation's tax code.
President Trump made a decision last week that could throw health insurance markets into chaos – but it’s not over yet. A new bipartisan deal is our best chance to make sure millions can access health care.
The Friends Committee on National Legislation strongly condemns
President Trump’s recent executive order to halt federal cost-sharing
reduction payments and calls on Congress to pass the bipartisan Alexander-Murray deal.

Update: Efforts unraveled on Tuesday to ram through yet another irresponsible and immoral bill that decimates Medicaid and would cause millions to lose coverage. The failure of the Graham-Cassidy ACA repeal bill is a testament to the power of people across this country raising their voices to elected officials.
The Graham-Cassidy proposal contains the same dangerous policies as the previous iterations of the ACA repeal bills. Just like the American Health Care Act (AHCA) and the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA), the Graham-Cassidy bill repeals much of the Affordable Care Act and then on top of that ends the Medicaid program as we know it.
