Clinton Calls For Repeal Of ‘Cadillac Tax’ On High-End Healthcare Plans

Share

WASHINGTON (Reuters) — U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton called on Tuesday for the repeal of the “Cadillac tax” on high-end health insurance plans that was established under President Barack Obama’s sweeping healthcare law.

“I encourage Congress to repeal the so-called Cadillac Tax, which applies to some employer-based health plans, and to fully pay for the cost of repeal,” Clinton said in a statement.

      Yeah, the GOP is right there – side by side with the president.

    I agree that this task is an inadvertent burden. Originally, this tax was viewed as a way to tax rich folks with high end health plans. Really though, these plans are used by very ill people, cancer patients and so forth. This tax, then, needs to go.

    The tax subsidy for employer provided health insurance is regressive.
