The Council’s Positions

The Council’s largest priority in this fight is the preservation of Employer-Sponsored Insurance. Employer-Sponsored Insurance (ESI) is the most common type of health coverage in the United States, with more than 181 million Americans depending on it. But some in Congress want to tax employees on the cost of their health care benefits.

Imposing a tax on employer-sponsored health plans is a dangerous policy experiment that could significantly erode employer-sponsored health coverage. Any cap on the tax exclusion is a direct tax on employees and the middle class.
