Media Advisory: Matthews Available to Discuss Senate Inclusion of Individual Mandate Repeal in Tax Bill
| Institute for Policy Innovation
DALLAS – Reports confirm the Senate has the votes to include a repeal of Obamacare’s individual mandate in its tax bill, which is not only a good step for health insurance reform, but also helps pay for tax reform.
Institute for Policy Innovation (IPI) resident scholar Dr. Merrill Matthews is available to discuss the Senate’s move to repeal the individual mandate, which he says in a recent op-ed in The Hill will have little impact on the number of uninsured.
“A strong economy — not government mandates and penalties — is the best way to increase the number of people with private health insurance,” said Matthews.
