Debate rages as 'Cadillac tax' gets closer

U.S. Rep. Courtney, D-Conn., helped pass legislation that would delay the "Cadillac tax" from taking effect until 2018. He's now sponsoring legislation that would scrap it altogether. 

Beginning in 2018, the government will impose heavy financial penalties on employer-provided health plans it deems overly generous. But some lawmakers hope to cancel the tax altogether.
