Sounds right to me 

From my distant perch out here in Fairfax (and Arlington), I believe this means health care reform is falling apart. It means the unions won't let them tax health insurance benefits and the CBO won't let them punt on the issue of finance.
Tyler Cowen, on the news that the Congress is contemplating VAT to pay for the health insurance plan. I wrote about VAT here three weeks ago. I think Obama too has been stung enough on the deficit question that he has to pay for health care somehow, ergo his PAYGO pledge.
