Washington, D.C. - Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on the Senate Finance Committee's decision to include his proposal to repeal the Obamacare individual mandate in the tax legislation:

"I'm pleased the Senate Finance Committee has accepted my proposal to repeal the Obamacare individual mandate in the tax legislation. Repealing the mandate pays for more tax cuts for working families and protects them from being fined by the IRS for not being able to afford insurance that Obamacare made unaffordable in the first place. I urge the House to include the mandate repeal in their tax legislation."
