The tax on gross sales of medical devices is without a doubt one of the dumbest taxes Congress has ever imposed. It makes absolutely no sense to impose a tax in the Affordable Care Act that DIRECTLY increases health care costs. It is a real shame that Senator Reid and his allies in the Senate would not allow a vote for repeal. Both Senators Toomey and Casey agree with the repeal so this should not be an ideological issue.
