Obamacare needs to be repealed in it's entirety!!! We need a balanced budget and all the pork that has been put forth by the Democrats needs to be removed. This country needs to sit down like a typical American family, make a budget, stick to it and pull ourselves out of this quagmire we are in. Ridding ourselves of all the perpetrators in Washington would be a good first step!!!

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.
