Labor Leaders Say HC Tax Would Hurt Unions

Ad Feedback

The president and congressional Democrats meet Wednesday to narrow some of the differences between the House and Senate health care bills.

Party leaders say they're likely to abandon a House-approved surtax on the wealthy. But a new tax on high-value health insurance plans is still on the table.

Labor leaders say the tax would hurt union members -- who receive lower pay for better benefits.

The 40 percent tax would fall on employer health plans worth more than $8,500 for individuals or 23-thousand for a family.

Meanwhile, a new CBS News poll shows President Obama's handling of health care has hit a new low.

Only 36% of Americans feel he has done a good job reforming health care.
