Wendy Block, Senior Director, Health Policy, Human Resources, and Business Advocacy for the Michigan Chamber. Congress has less than 76 days to repeal or suspend the Health Insurance Tax (HIT), a $267 billion+ sales tax on health insurance. The Michigan Chamber is warning about the consequences of inaction: premium increases for businesses of all sizes and types, individuals, seniors, states, and taxpayers. Some Congressman are trying to take action, HR 246 would stop HIT from taking effect in 2018. U.S. Reps. Mike BISHOP (R-Rochester), Jack BERGMAN (R-Watersmeet), Bill HUIZENGA (R-Zeeland), Paul MITCHELL (R-Dryden), John MOOLENAAR (R-Midland), Dave TROTT (R-Birmingham) and Tim WALBERG (R-Tipton) are all co-sponsors.
