Taxing your healthcare benefits in order to fund healthcare. Sounds circular to me.

Apparently, Congress has put forth the “stellar” idea to remove the tax exemptions that are synonmous with employer provided healthcare (Article).
Although there is a long history of taxing benefits that do not result in cash in hand, this proposition is absurd at its inception. Next Congress might try and determine how much money a person saves on an FSA and tax him or her on that as well.
