The House voted Wednesday night to pass a bill that would scrap Obamacare's so-called Cadillac tax, an inactive provision of the health law meant to help control health-care spending.
The tax, set to go into effect in 2022, is unpopular with both Republicans and Democrats, who say it punishes the middle class.
The "Middle Class Health Benefits Tax Repeal Act of 2019" had more than 350 co-sponsors and was expected to pass the Democratic-controlled House on Wednesday afternoon.
The provision imposes a tax on employment-based health insurance coverage that exceeds certain thresholds $10,200 for individual coverage and $27,500 for family coverage.
All health insurance benefits paid by employers above that amount would be taxed at 40%.
