If you get your health care coverage through work, it's time to start paying attention to what’s going on in Washington, says the AFL-CIO. “Especially to the new plan to tax our health benefits.” Republican leaders in Congress are doing their best to keep this under wraps, but under the Republican plan being discussed, at least some of the cost of our health care benefits could be included in our taxable earnings. Employers may well react to this by cutting back on our health benefits through even higher deductibles and co-pays or even eliminating our health plans altogether. "Let your senators and members of Congress know what you think," urges the AFL-CIO. "Tell them not to tax your workplace health care benefits. You might even want to do that in person. They are at home this week, hosting town halls, public appearances and other events with their constituents." Click here to find an event near you.
