House Republicans were joined Thursday by three-dozen Democrats to repeal part of Obama’s health care law – a tax on medical devices. The GOP has launched a full court press, saying bipartisan opposition to the tax illustrates the illegitimacy of all of Obamacare. President Obama has threatened to veto the repeal.
Republican candidates and committees, including Mitt Romney, the RNC, the PAGOP, Tom Smith for Senate, every GOP member of the PA delegation and most candidates have lined up to blast the impending tax.
“The ill-considered medical device tax is only one of many fatal flaws in Obamacare. As president, I will work from my first day in office to dismantle Barack Obama’s federal health-care takeover and replace it with real reform that strengthens our health care system and puts patients first,” Romney said.
“Today’s vote in the House represents a step in the right direction toward repealing the overreaching Obama-Casey health care takeover that has only grown our nearly $15.7 trillion debt and raised the price health insurance on Pennsylvania families,” echoed Smith.
