The tax on "Cadillac" health insurance

When the uber liberal columnist for the uber liberal New York Times describes the tax on "Cadillac" health insurance plans as "a middle-class tax time bomb", you know it's no good.

The tax on health benefits is being sold to the public dishonestly as something that will affect only the rich, and it makes a mockery of President Obama's repeated pledge that if you like the health coverage you have now, you can keep it.

Those who believe this is a good idea should at least have the courage to be straight about it with the American people.


Bob Herbert sounds like a middle aged man who's going to lose his own union negotiated "Cadillac" health plan, just as he reaches the age when he's going to need it!
