Are you surprised? I'm not surprised. Communists always target the sick and disabled first. The morons in Congress didn't read the bill, then when they found out about the medical device tax, they assumes there was no way the cost of the tax would be passed onto the consumers. Who uses medical devices? Sick people, disabled people, or people recovering from a surgery or illness, right?
I posted yesterday about the 17 morons who now want to delay the medical device tax. They must be up for re-election in 2014. That's usually the only time a Democrat opposes a tax.
Anyway, I was up late last night reading tax code and trying to find out which medical devices we use here at home would be taxed. In case you don't know, I have two chronically ill kids. My son's catheters will be taxed and anything that comes from home health or the hospital. 2.3% tax that will most assuredly increase the cost for the consumer.
Vet supplies are taxed, too! Human medical supplies include pathology, urology, OB/GYN, hematology, orthopedic and the list goes on and one and on. Below is a great article on the tax and a link to the Federal Register details of "Taxable Medical Devices"
