“Reid and Pelosi have been talking since the spring with President Obama about repealing the “Cadillac tax” on employer healthcare benefits, a senior Democratic aide confirmed on Friday.”
“Both Reid and Pelosi have remained relatively quiet on the tax since the bill's passage in 2010. Even as dozens of Democrats signed onto bills in their respective chambers to repeal it, Reid and Pelosi stayed in the background, refraining from public statements on the efforts.
Powerful labor groups such as the AFL-CIO and the American Federation of Teachers vehemently opposed the Cadillac tax from the start. They say repeal needs to happen soon, before employers begin trimming back healthcare benefits.
Aside from the question of how to pay for repeal, the Democrats' biggest roadblock is the Obama administration.” - Reid, Pelosi pushing for repeal of ObamaCare's 'Cadillac tax', the hill.com, 11/06/2015
