Nobody made the men who have fought and died for our country go to war. They did it because they are patriots and to defend our freedoms and liberties. Of course, Obama would have no idea what that is about because 1) he claims to be a US citizen but he never went to war. He has never sacrificed anything for this country. Instead of having the military cut their pay and their medical care, how about he gives up all his multi-million dollar vacations and puts a stop to his wife's spending thousands on clothes. He can cut half his staff and still have many more people than he needs. He has many, many more than any President has ever had. Most First Ladies have had one secretary. I've lost count on Michelle entourage.

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.
