The last thing that sick, older Americans struggling to pay for high health care costs need right now is a tax hike, but that's exactly what will happen unless Congress takes action.
The Medical Expense Savings Act would stop an increase in the income threshold over which Americans 65+ can deduct their medical expenses, which would protect older Americans from a potential tax increase for this year.
Make sure that this proposal passes into law before the end of the year. Send a letter to Congress today, and ask them to vote yes on the Medical Expense Savings Act.
By taking action you will join AARP's online network and will receive urgent news and action alerts about the issues that matter the most to older Americans, as well as information about AARP activities, events, and member benefits.
