Employers applaud ‘Cadillac’ tax delay but still seek repeal
Washington Post

Congress delivered an early holiday present to employers this week when it proposed a two-year delay for a health benefits tax many would have had to pay starting in 2018. But businesses hope Santa will eventually leave something better under the tree.

The delay, which was reached as part of a budget deal, means companies that offer employees expensive health insurance will not have to pay the so-called Cadillac tax for those plans until 2020.
