Petition Statement

Anyone having to pay their own health insurance premiums should be entitled to deduct them from their taxes in addition to the standard deductions.
There are currently 56 signatures. NEW goal - We need 100 signatures!

Petition Background

My health insurance premiums are $688/mo., leaving me $28/mo. for all living expenses. Health Insurance has never been mandatory before and has helped the very old and the very young, but all in between have fallen through the cracks. Anyone having to pay their own health insurance premiums should be entitled to deduct them from their taxes in addition to the standard deductions.
