Despite Low Understanding of ‘Cadillac Tax’, Most Voters Want it Repealed, Delayed
A majority of U.S. voters say the Affordable Care Act's so-called "Cadillac tax" will harm health care quality, according to a Morning Consult poll released Wednesday. Under the ACA, employers that offer health plans with annual premiums of more than $10,200 for individuals or $27,500 for families will pay a 40% excise tax on the portion of the premiums that exceeds those thresholds. The poll found that about seven in 10 respondents said the Cadillac tax should be "repealed" or "delayed." Meanwhile, the poll also found that about seven in 10 people said they were "unsure" or "mistaken" in their understanding of the tax.
