This thread is so full of misinformation and ridiculous claims... Nobody here seems to care that McCain's so-called health policy will TAX everyone's employee-based health benefits. http://wonkroom.thinkprogress.org/wp-content/uploads/2008/07/health_taxes21.pdf For most taxpayers, McCain’s tax credit quickly becomes a tax increase. McCain’s new tax credit grows only at the rate of inflation (about 2 percent a year), while current tax subsidies keep up with health insurance premiums (about 7 percent a year). As a result, the value of the tax credit quickly falls behind rising health care costs, meaning most households with employer coverage today would soon see a tax increase. Many middle-class households under the McCain plan pay higher taxes immediately. Households with employer-sponsored coverage, higher incomes, and higher premiums are the most likely to see immediate tax increases. The largest tax increases fall on middle-class families, which pay the highest combined payroll and income tax rates.
