But it's not a "tax increase", no siree

The information on  the annual benefits enrollment period was published today. Dates, general coverages and the like.

Included in the information was the fact that the upper limit for flexible spending accounts - those wonderful vehicles that allow you to make certain health-related costs, including your co-pay on prescriptions, on a pre-tax basis - has been cut in half. In half.

But this isn't a "tax increase" on the middle class. Oh no. Not at all. It doesn't matter that our total annual health costs are going up - as long as it is not a "tax", we have nothing to worry about.
