Action Alert: Keep the Adoption Tax Credit and Repeal IPAB

Posted by Chelsea (Shields) Duffy on

Call Sen. Ron Johnson, Sen. Tammy Baldwin, and your member of Congress to urge them to retain the adoption tax credit and repeal IPAB!

Adoption Tax Credit (Update 11/9/17 - Adoption Tax Credit is restored!)

Right now, Congress is considering H.R. 1, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. Some members of Congress are considering ending the adoption tax credit (section 1102(b)) and the exclusion for adoption assistance programs (section 1406). Both significantly help parents as they face steep financial expenses when adopting a child.

Adoption is a life-affirming option, and is strongly supported by the pro-life movement. We as a society ought to remove financial barriers to adoption, rather than create them. (Update 11/9/17 - Adoption Tax Credit is restored!)

Repealing IPAB

The Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) is composed of 15 unelected bureaucrats who recommend measures to limit private, nongovernmental spending on health care to a growth rate below medical inflation, along with limiting government spending in Medicare.

Despite media reports, IPAB’s powers do go beyond a benign effort to control Medicare spending. IPAB would recommend drastic limits for the Department of Health and Human Services to impose on what Americans are allowed to spend out of their own funds, to save their own lives, and the lives of their families.

H.R. 849, the Protecting Seniors’ Access to Medicare Act of 2017, would repeal IPAB and protect Americans from health care rationing.

Please contact Sen. Johnson, Sen. Baldwin, and your member of Congress to:

  • Retain the adoption tax credit and exclusion for adoption assistance programs while considering H.R. 1, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017(Update 11/9/17 - Adoption Tax Credit is restored! Please address the point below)
  • Support H.R. 849, the Protecting Seniors’ Access to Medicare Act of 2017, would repeal IPAB and protect Americans from health care rationing.
