Conservatives Should Vote to Delay the ‘Cadillac’ Tax
In an opinion piece published this week, Douglas Holtz-Eakin, President of the American Action Forum, argues that the Affordable Care Act is full of bad tax policy.
Holtz-Eakin argues in favor of the two-year delay of the medical device tax, two-year delay of the 40 percent tax on health benefits (also known as the “Cadillac” tax) and a one-year moratorium of the “premium tax.”
“For two years, employers will not suffer the complexities of the Internal Revenue Service rulemaking to implement the Cadillac tax, employees will not endure higher insurance costs, and conservatives will have a window to develop alternative, sensible cost-control mechanisms.”
“Conservatives should fight against bad policy … at every given opportunity.”

Support a two-year delay of the 40 percent tax. Give Congress and the Administration time to protect health benefits.
