The last thing older Americans need right now is a tax hike, but Washington's current proposal could mean thousands of dollars out of seniors' pockets. The tax bill they're considering amounts to a Senior Tax, with a nearly 20 percent tax increase for many over 65, and a Health Tax, by eliminating the Medical Expense Deduction for the oldest and sickest Americans.
It's just not fair to reform taxes on the backs of America's seniors. Every single dollar counts for those living on a fixed income, and it's unfair and irresponsible for Washington to cut the vital tax relief that millions of seniors count on to survive.
Send a letter to your Representative today, and tell them that tax hikes for seniors should be off the table!
