More on Tax Reform
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congressman David Young today took an important step to protect the economic well-being of Iowans who may be caught in a mandated individual tax penalty catch-22 next year created by the Affordable Care Act (ACA)/Obamacare Law. Aetna and Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield announced their plan to pull out of Iowa’s individual health insurance market for 2018.
I believe our tax code is complicated and does not work. It’s time we scrap it, replace it, and simplify it to cut the burden on all Iowans. Washington has a responsibility to be more efficient, more effective, and more accountable in protecting hardworking Americans. My mission is to fight for common-sense tax reforms that recognize all taxpayers are owed a simpler, fairer, and more efficient system that is accountable and responsive to them.
As the President addressed Congress and Americans this week – he outlined his priorities for this great nation.
I thought this would be an appropriate time to discuss some of my priorities for the upcoming year. During my service in Congress, my promise has always been to focus on issues impacting Iowa and making our communities a better place to live, work, and raise a family. I spend each day focusing on the people and concerns of the Third Congressional District. I take the role of representing you and to do it the best I can very seriously.
