A new report shows just how bad an excise tax on health care benefits would be for the middle class.
The report was released today in response to new claims that the proposed excise tax does not raise taxes on middle class families. The Communications Workers of America's analysis of new data compiled by the Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) debunks this argument.
The analysis shows that the so-called “Cadillac tax” in the Senate version of the health care bill would have a disastrous impact on middle-class Americans. The report, which refutes key arguments made by proponents of the tax, details how the effect of the tax on Americans is more widespread and deleterious than its proponents claim.
