Getting to the Bottom of the "Obama Supports Sex Ed for Kindergarteners" Accusation

Byron York analyzes the bill in question and concludes:

Obama’s explanation for his vote has been accepted by nearly all commentators. And perhaps that is indeed why he voted for Senate Bill 99, although we don’t know for sure. But we do know that the bill itself was much more than that. The fact is, the bill’s intention was to mandate that issues like contraception and the prevention of sexually-transmitted diseases be included in sex-education classes for children before the sixth grade, and as early as kindergarten. Obama’s defenders may howl, but the bill is what it is.

Unrelated to the topic at hand, please explain McCain's healthcare plan, which includes taxing the employer paid portion of health insurance premiums, and then providing a tax deduction of $2,500 to $5,000, because that makes no sense to me.
