Unions, Obama to discuss taxing health plans

Obama plans to meet with union leaders over the proposal in the next few days, a labor official told the Wall Street Journal. Unions, who are among the Democrats' most loyal supporters, argue that the plan will punish workers who won excellent health benefits in hard-fought negotiations.
