City eyes Cadillac tax rule
“In meetings with business owners and employees across my state, I have heard similar concerns that mandates and taxes under the health care law are making it harder for businesses to grow and hire,” she continued in the letter.
U.S. Democratic Rep. Annie Kuster also replied to his letter, stating that she shared concerns about the impact of the tax, while also pointing out the positive aspects of the health law.
Contracts typically run for three to four years, and health care costs are a key component.
Alderman-At-Large Joe Kelly Levasseur has been critical of seeking a waiver from the Cadillac tax, arguing it would deprive the city of leverage in negotiations. But he said on Tuesday that he was glad the mayor raised the issue.
