That’s why I cosponsored a bill in the House to repeal the medical device tax. This bipartisan measure, the Protect Medical Innovation Act, has been cosponsored by at least two hundred and sixty House members. As President of the Republican Freshman class, I also recently initiated a letter that was signed by more than thirty of my new Republican colleagues urging passage of this bill.
It is just commonsense. Enactment of this bill will protect medical innovation, preserve patient access to care and save American jobs. We should not put American manufacturers at a competitive disadvantage and put patient care at risk simply to pay for the President’s broken health care law.
