Dems Ask for Delay to Obamacare Med Device Tax They Voted for in the First Place
 
Dems Ask for Delay to Obamacare Med Device Tax They Voted for in the First Place



Medical Device Tax is just one of 20 Obamacare Taxes.


In a letter to Majority Leader Harry Reid, 18 Democrat senators and senators-elect have asked for “a delay in the implementation” of the Obamacare medical device tax. Like most of the significant tax increases in Obamacare, the medical device tax is scheduled to take effect on Jan. 1, 2013, conveniently after the 2012 presidential election.

Each of the 18 Democrat signatories voted for or supported Obamacare in the first place. And now they want a sweetheart exemption from one of its most onerous provisions. Even in Washington DC, that shows a lot of gall.

The signatories to the letter are as follows:

Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.)

Kay Hagan (D-N.C.)

Al Franken (D-Minn.)

Herb Kohl (D-Wis.)

Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.)

John Kerry (D-Mass.)

Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.)

Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.)

Robert Casey (D-Pa.)

Ben Nelson (D-Neb.)

Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.)

Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.)

Dick Durbin (D-Ill.)

Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.)

Patty Murray (D-Wash.)

Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.)

Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.)

Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) – (Voted for Obamacare in the House)

Something tells me that had they read the ****ing bill before they voted on it this would not be necessary.

Remember, Obamacare was supposed to reduce the cost of healthcare. Somehow taxing medical devices, which I criticized from day 1, doesn't make it cheaper but more expensive. And just to think, it only took them 2 years to figure it out!

Why does this tax apply to medical equipment for veterinarians?

Outrageous. Next thing you know, someone will propose a bill, then filibuster their own proposal.

Direckshun 12-11-2012 08:22 PM

Next thing you know, someone will vote for the totality of a law but seek ways afterwards to alter the enforcement of certain particulars.

I mean, it's not like that ever happens, every day, in every damn legislature on earth.

So, they want an exemption? For who and for what reason?
Need more info.

Thats a separate issue. The Tax is to help pay for ObamaCare. Stay on point here. Whether ObamaCare makes care cheaper is not relevant as long as we can get enough revenue to pay for ObamaCare. You foolishly get tied up is stupid shit like "results" or "consequences".
