Stop Ron Wyden's Health Tax
There are a lot of different proposals being offered as solutions to America's health care crisis.
The Wyden proposal, which taxes our benefits and leaves us at the mercy of insurance companies, is the wrong way. His bill (S. 391) would enact the first ever tax on health care benefits. In these tough economic times, we just can't afford it.
Tell Senator Wyden his plan is the wrong way to reform health care.
1. Real Choices
If you like your health care, you should be able to keep it. If you don't, you should have choices, including a public health insurance option.
2. Create Competition
Public health insurance plans are more efficient and cost effective. We should create a new public plan to compete with more expensive private insurance plans to drive costs down.
3. Guaranteed Quality and Affordable Care
A public health insurance option would guarantee that every American would have quality, affordable health care no matter what happens to his or her job or private insurance.
4. No Taxation of Benefits as Income
Taxing health care benefits as income would increase costs for Americans, not lower them.
