    taxes employer healthcare benefits above a certain amount (why is this more tenable than changing itemized deductions for the wealthy?)

    That's an easy one: because Senators, by and large (Biden was a rare exception) are wealthy. When you have the wealthy making the laws, don't expect them to make laws that take money away from the wealthy. Expect them to make laws that take money away from the poor and middle-class and funnel it TO the wealthy.
