Labor groups blast Senator on health benefits tax
A coalition of labor groups is aiming at Senator Ron Wyden, a Democrat from Oregon, who supports taxing employer-provided health benefits as a way to pay for overhauling the healthcare system. An advertisement released by the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, the United Food and Commercial Workers and the National Education Association says "the last thing we need is to pay more. But Senator Ron Wyden would tax the healthcare benefits we get at work—as if they were income. Taxing healthcare benefits? That doesn't make sense."
