Hillary Rodham Clinton will come out this week against a tax on generous health-care plans that is a key means of funding the Affordable Care Act she supports, but is also opposed by labor unions crucial to her presidential bid.
Clinton plans to announce that she seeks a repeal of the so-called “Cadillac tax” on premium health plans, a campaign official said Tuesday. Clinton’s position was first reported by the New York Times.
Clinton frequently praises the 2010 ACA, often known as Obamacare, but says it does not go far enough. She has proposed $250 monthly caps on out-of-pocket costs for prescription drugs and three unscheduled doctor visits annually that would not count against a patient’s insurance plan deductible.

So then is how is subsidized health care going to be paid for if the 'Cadillac' Tax gets nixed ?
Those insurance policies have to be paid for some other way.
Raise taxes on the middle class ?
Raise taxes on the evil rich?
Create new taxes like the alternative minimum tax ?
Create more new taxes like the Medicare Surtax ?
Answer ALL of the above.
