Unbending the cost curve - Greg Mankiw notes that one of the only provisions in the original health care legislation that everybody agreed would reduce costs and fund the plan was the tax on "Cadillac" plans. But the unions balked, so it was scrapped. Well, it wasn't dropped but instead pushed out until 2018 for plans with a value over $27K, of which there are very few.

Extra - Good review from Hennessey.
