It's worth pointing out

that John McCain's plan for an America where insurance premiums go up every year is to tax those benefits if you get them from your work.

I'm confused by this on so many levels. It certainly seems like bad policy, but more than that, it seems like bad politics. People like me who get their health insurance through work are about the only ones outside of veterans who are even remotely happy with their health care coverage. And his big idea for improving our health care system is to take the "haves" and make their health insurance more expensive?

I guess spreading the misery around must be defensible from some perspective, but I can't imagine why a politician would propose it.
