(Worthy News) - Some Senate Republicans aren’t ruling out including a repeal of Obamacare’s individual mandate in a tax reform bill even though leaders of the House effort have nixed the idea in their legislation.
The House is expected to release its tax reform legislation on Wednesday and the Senate some time later. Rep. Kevin Brady, R-Texas, head of the House Ways and Means Committee and leading the House tax reform effort, said Tuesday that the bill wouldn’t include a repeal of Obamacare’s mandate that every individual have insurance or pay a penalty.
But Brady’s counterpart in the Senate, Finance Chairman Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, wouldn’t say whether the Senate tax bill would include the repeal. “We’ll have to see. We are still working,” he said. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
