I do not get medicare. I'm still young enough to be paying for my own health care insurance, even though I pay a boatload into Medicare and Medicaid on top of my own health care insurance premiums. And when I get to the proper age, I'll probably be means tested out of most of the money I've paid into to Medicare. I hope to never be poor enough to get medicaid, even though I've paid a lot into that program as well.

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.
