U.S. Democratic lawmakers are discussing proposing changes to the “Cadillac tax,” a levy on high-cost employer-based healthcare plans passed as part of President Barack Obama’s 2010 Affordable Care Act, the Senate’s No. 2 Democrat said on Tuesday.

“I’m not proposing eliminating it at this point, I’m open to suggestions for changing it,” Illinois Senator Dick Durbin told reporters.

“I don’t know if it’ll be done this year or next year,” Durbin added. “But we’re trying to figure out a way to change it or remove it and the impact it would have.”
