Cost up to up 39,000 jobs? Bull! It's going to cost a lot more jobs than that.
But job losses will pale in comparison to the number of people; sick, with disabilities, or severely injured, who will live limited lives, or in pain, or die because they will be denied the medical devices necessary to sustain and/or maintain their lives because the tax makes those devices unavailable and/or unaffordable.
And what about the future? How many people will die in the future because this tax not only stifles manufacturing of medical devices reducing their availability in the market, but also stifles innovation in the industry?
