I don't agree with the 2.3% tax but lets face reality here. If a physician or hospital is going to spend $10,000 on a piece of medical equipment, why should an additional $230 make a difference? Quick answer - it won't. Unless a company is losing money already, the 2.3% tax added to the sales cost of the equipment will not stop investment by doctors or hospitals.
When you stop to think about it for a moment, how many medical equipment manufacturer's are going to go out of business over a 2.3% sales tax? Think for a moment about the profit a doctor or hospital makes off of a new piece of equipment and do you think for one moment they will not invest because of few hundred dollars?
Another Democrat dog and pony show.
