There's a vote loser. Recalls the phrase: "We are going to take things away from you for the common good."
Bush is not going to take it away. He is just going to discourage too much FREE insurance coverage by not allowing it to go untaxed. If your employer wants to give too much coverage, it would still be able to do so but it will be taxed. The end result is that insurance coverage must only cover big things, not every cold, etc. or people will use too much of it when it is free and that causes the price of health care coverage to go up. Again, too much free insurance coverage (from employers and the government) has caused the high health care costs in this country.

Were you absent the day in Econ 101 when they taught there is no such thing as a FREE lunch?
