I worry about the effect on employment. It may end up being cheaper for employers to hire people for less than full time, cut back on employer benefits in the so called "Cadillac" plans (as long as they don't involve union voters - how fair is that?), and possibly influence thinking on overseas outsourcing.
Not to mention the increased tax I will have to pay after voting for a candidate who promised "no increase in taxes on a family earning less than $250,000". Call it tax or cap on flex spending, if I end up paying substantially more on April 15, that's an increase in taxes. What's the justification for balancing the bill on the backs of those with chronic illnesses? Other than those belonging to unions. Or Congress.
