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 ďa delay in the implementationĒ 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.) Ė (Voted for Obamacare in the House)

The device tax s ****ed up in every way. They are taxing an item, not profit. Just possessing the technology gets you taxed. How ****ed is that? Would you support a renewable energy device tax? Just tax everybody on the asset of owning a windmill or solar panel? We should do that actually, get some money back from those subsidized ****s.

Tis was not new, nor a surprise when they voted the ****ing bill. It was kind of a big deal and had these slapdicks banded together n the first place they could have gotten the thing dropped from the bill in the first place. Renewable device tax. We should do that.

It's a business property tax and a fundamentally flawed construct.

What sense does it make to tax a company for putting forth the capital to produce an item before they have a chance to sell the item to generate the capital to pay the ****ed up taxes in the first place.

I'm not sure where you get the property tax thing in the first place. it's my understanding that it's an excise tax?

There have been states that have taxed businesses on their business property. They value the cash registers, supplies, business assets etc and then add that to the business' tax total. It's ****ed.

That is property tax. They also get a depreciation tax break. This isn't new.

Still trying to figure out why you think it's a property tax.
