McCain health plan could mean higher tax

New York Times, May 1, 2008
Senator John McCain has promised to not raise taxes, but his campaign acknowledged that the health plan he outlined this week would have the effect of increasing tax payments for some workers.The campaign cannot yet project how many taxpayers might see their taxes go up, but a McCain adviser said that for some, McCain's healthcare tax credits would not be large enough to compensate for his proposal to eliminate the tax breaks afforded to workers with employer-provided health benefits.
