U.S. Senate signals willingness to repeal medical device tax Posted by Laura
This story should convince Republicans NOT to abandon their efforts to chip away (and completely repeal) the abomination known as Obamacare. Democrats, despite having devoted millions of dollars and 3 years to trying to convince Americans to love the "Affordable Care Act," have failed miserably in this endeavor. As a nation we remain opposed to Obamacare and fretful over what the effects of the law will be on insurance costs and availability of quality care. Employers are dropping health insurance, and doctors' practices are being gobbled up by impersonal hulking hospital bureaucracies. Thousands of healthcare professionals are deciding to bag it altogether and are retire early. Republicans may now win the issue of repealing the medical device tax, which has cost jobs and added obscenely to the costs of everything from braces to bedpans. Lesson: Do what Mitt Romney couldn't really credibly do--argue the nightmarish effects of America under Obamacare. If they do this with specificity, personal testimony of doctors and patients (sound familiar?), they could very pick up more seats in both the House and Senate.
