Big Dan's Big News Sep 29, 2008

Why isn't anybody talking about this: John McCain wants to tax your employer-provided health care benefits! Is it that it's so unbelievable, that no one will discuss it??? This is NOT a new issue, it's just not being discussed anywhere. Obama brought this up in the debate, and McCain did NOT deny it!

Today's issue: health insurance. John McCain wants to tax your employer-provided health care benefits. He wants to replace those benefits with an insufficient tax credit--$2500 for individuals and $5000 for families (the average cost per family for health insurance is $12000).

McCain Health Plan Could Mean Higher Tax

McCain’s numbers add up only by raising taxes on middle-class families. To raise $3.6 trillion by taxing health benefits, you need both income and payroll taxes. But that means an $1,100 tax increase on a typical married couple earning $60,000 in 2013.
