house Bill H.R. 748

Should the Obamacare ‘Cadillac Tax’ on High-Cost, Employer-Sponsored Health Insurance Plans Be Repealed?

Argument in favor

The Cadillac tax unfairly punishes businesses for offering their employees with a broad variety of health insurance plans, which is why it has been delayed multiple times by Congress. This bipartisan bill would repeal it once and for all to protect nearly half of American workers from higher premiums and deductibles.

I work for a small company. We have 90 or so employees. We are blessed to have our employer pay our health insurance. This is a great benefit to myself and my family. I would hate to wake up in 2022 and hear it announced that our company would have to abandon the benefit due to the tax hike. This will hurt people like me and will hurt small businesses.

Argument opposed

The Cadillac tax may have bipartisan opposition, but it should be allowed to take effect to bring in much-needed tax revenue. Employers and unions should be discouraged from offering broader health insurance benefits to their employees.

Too much of our economic system and tax system are structured to benefit the wealthy, giving them hidden subsidies. We need to have ways of providing support for all of our people, especially in the areas of health care, education, and housing. In this case, this tax is one way to generate funds to support needed services for those who are not wealthy. Until we are ready to responsibly overhaul our whole system, we will need small steps like this. Taking this tax away is just one more way to, piece-by-piece, destroy a program that has produced some significant benefits. While ACA is far from perfect, it has made a difference for many, many people. Let's continue to support it, as is, and work to make the larger system more fair and just.

    Congress should not be able to exempt themselves from Obamacare, they should be held to the same standards as the rest of the US citizens.

    Over a period of time (10 to 20 years), we need to phase out for profit insurance plans and funnel that money directly into our health system. This tax is a step in that direction.
