Bush Wants to Raise Taxes on Your Health Care

From The Washington Post:

The changes are meant to be revenue-neutral. To pay for them, the administration is considering eliminating the deduction of state and local taxes on federal income tax returns and scrapping the business tax deduction for employer-provided health insurance, the advisers said.

The "changes" in question are tax cuts on investment. These of course will benefit the wealthy greatly -- but they're revenue neutral, so get out your wallet. The attempt to bust employer-provided health insurance is especially cruel.
