Anyone from here in Colorado should be having a HUGE laugh right now at Pat Styker. She is heiress to the Styker fortune, and co-owner of the STRYKER Corporation....who are very big in the medical device industry. For many years she has been supporting with huge amounts of money any and all parts of the libert@rd agenda here in well as being a big support for BO. Now, her company is one of the hardest hit by ObamaCare....guess what goes around, comes around.

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.
