Another outstanding leftist critique of health care bill

This criticism of the health care bill is from the PNHP, a group advocating single-payer insurance: (I actually don't support that, but that's besides the point):

* The new 40 percent tax on high-cost health plans – deceptively labeled a “Cadillac tax” – would hit many middle-income families. The costs of group insurance are driven largely by regional health costs and the demography of the covered group. Hence, the tax targets workers in firms that employ more women (whose costs of care are higher than men’s), and older and sicker employees, particularly those in high-cost regions such as Maine and New York.
