Since passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), taxes and health care have become more intertwined than in previous years. The ACA created a number of new taxes and fees. However, the ACA’s individual mandate was repealed on a bipartisan basis.

Biden proposed strengthening the Affordable Care Act (ACA) by eliminating the 400 percent income cap on tax credit eligibility and lowering the limit on the cost of overage from 9.86 percent of income to 8.5.
