If you have a secret magic decoder ring, you can see through the smoke and mirrors of this political act of CYA. The "SYMBOLIC" measure will be attached to a "NON-BINDING" budget measure drafted by "SENATE DEMOCRATS" that is expected to pass on Friday. In short, it will repeal nothing while giving vulnerable Dems in the Senate cover for claiming to vote against the medical device tax after they voted for it. Beam me up Snotty, Democrats stink.

Apparently, the Senate thinks the medical device tax in ObamaCare is a pretty bad idea and voted to repeal it last night.

The Senate overwhelmingly passed a largely symbolic resolution calling for repeal of a 2.3 percent tax on medical device companies on Thursday, as more than 30 Democrats joined Republicans in approving it.

The tax helps to fund President Barack Obama's 2010 healthcare law. It applies to a range of medical products - from bedpans to expensive heart devices - many manufactured in the home states of the senators backing the repeal.
