U.S. Chamber Commends Passage of House Legislation That Would Repeal “Cadillac Tax”
U.S. Chamber of Commerce Executive Vice President and Chief Policy Officer Neil Bradley released the following statement today after the House passed H.R. 748, the “Middle Class Health Benefits Tax Repeal Act of 2019.” The Chamber issued a key vote in support of passage of the bill.
“We commend the House for passing this legislation, which would repeal the so-called “Cadillac Tax.” The Chamber has long supported the repeal of the Cadillac Tax, which is forcing employers to cut health benefits to employees and their families. We encourage the Senate to move this legislation forward so that the 181 million Americans who rely on coverage from their employers would have a path forward to greater healthcare access and more affordable coverage.”
