    A nationwide poll of 1,200 voters has shown wide agreement that the so-called "Cadillac Tax" on high-cost health plans should be repealed.

    "Today's survey not only shows that those favoring repeal outnumber those favoring implementation by more than three to one, it also reveals deep skepticism that the tax will deliver on its purported benefits," Klein said.
