It's Obamacare, baby!

Because that's what "we the people" voted for, in the 2008 election!! We voted for the party that believes in higher taxes, and more government interference!

You don't pay income tax on health insurance provided by your employer. Yet.

If you have been paying income tax on health insurance you need to go back and file an amended return. You have got a refund coming.

Whoever you are addressing your question to, if you're talking about the US, you're mistaken.

So far, nobody has to pay income tax on the value of their company-paid health insurance. Once that takes effect, ALL employees, INCLUDING those who work for the government, will be taxed equally.

The only exception might be a policy for a businessowner, in which case it may need to be purchased with post tax dollars.
However, you are not taxed on your health plan.

You are confused.

I'm not a gov't employee.
And, gov't employees pay for their portion of the coverage with pre-tax dollars...like everyone else.
