Representative bars any taxes on workers' healthcare

New York Times, May 7, 2009

Representative Charles B. Rangel, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, said that there was "no way" he would support taxing employer-provided health benefits, Americans' leading source of coverage. The comment came after a committee hearing with the new secretary of health and human services, Kathleen Sebelius. Rangel's remark was the clearest indication yet of the difficulties Democrats may have in raising money to fulfill President Obama's campaign promise of offering health insurance to all Americans.
