Public News Service: Senior Advocates Oppose “Age Tax” Bill And “Trumpcare” (3/16/2017) A bill proposed in the House of Representatives would raise the amount of insurance paid by seniors by up to five times the current amount. Advocacy groups oppose the bill. Justice in Aging’s Amber Christ said, “It’s particularly problematic because it’s increasing the amount of premiums older adults will be subject to while also decreasing the amount in tax premium credits that older adults will receive.”
