Too much of our economic system and tax system are structured to benefit the wealthy, giving them hidden subsidies. We need to have ways of providing support for all of our people, especially in the areas of health care, education, and housing. In this case, this tax is one way to generate funds to support needed services for those who are not wealthy. Until we are ready to responsibly overhaul our whole system, we will need small steps like this. Taking this tax away is just one more way to, piece-by-piece, destroy a program that has produced some significant benefits. While ACA is far from perfect, it has made a difference for many, many people. Let's continue to support it, as is, and work to make the larger system more fair and just.
