Washington insiders are pushing the idea of taxing health benefits provided by employers. It is an outrageous idea that had been proposed by Presidential Candidate John McCain and rejected by the nation.
Such a tax would undermine employer based health benefits without guaranteeing the care that would come with a single payer plan.
Only through single payer can we save the $400 billion annually from the profits and administrative waste of the private insurance companies.
