House Takes a Bipartisan Stand Against an Obamacare Tax

Washington, D.C. – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on House passage of H.R. 160, the Protecting Medical Innovation Act:

“In an attempt to cover its high costs, Obamacare raised taxes on medical devices, which destroys jobs, hampers investment and innovation, and threatens the development of and access to medical technology that seniors, American families, and our most vulnerable rely on. On several occasions now, the House has passed bipartisan bills repealing this widely unpopular tax, though the President has threatened another veto. I hope today’s bipartisan vote, which included the support 46 Democrats and every single Republican present, will make the President reconsider.”
