I’ve been wondering how McCain is going to fund this $5k health care credit that he and Palin keep bringing up. I’ve been listening too, and not once have they said where the money is going to come from that will be given out as a “credit.” Atlanta’s NBC affiliate seems to have found the answer…(bold text is my addition)
In fact, McCain’s plan would tax health care benefits people receive from employers in order to finance the $5,000 tax credit. Obama’s ads argue the new tax would raise the cost of insurance for employers, forcing millions off the rolls.
Socialized medicine, anyone?
