Democrat Controlled Senate Votes to Repeal ObamaCare Medical Device Tax

By the way, for raul and some of the other socialists, when these big medical companies begin to suffer because of Obamacare and all of it's taxes, when other private industries begin to cut expenses to pay for Obamacare requirements and regulations, those private industry companies will begin to lay off people. That will cause a ripple effect in the economy and will also result in less tax revenues to the government to pay for the governments role in Obamacare. It's a house of cards, but the cards are made of lead. It will eventually collapse under its own weight, just as the Soviet economy did under CommieCare, which was mostly focused around military expenditures rather than health care. But the two are analogous, in the end.

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.
