house Bill H.R. 160

Should the Tax on Medical Devices Through the ACA be Repealed?

Argument in favor

Even though the medical device tax is supposed to apply to manufacturers and importers, the costs just get passed on to consumers. Passing those costs off on patients makes healthcare more expensive.

Do not make medicine more expensive. Another part of ACA that does not make any sense as most of the other parts do not.

The gov't has enough money. Patients have a hard enough time paying medical bills, now! I vote YEA! It's a shame my state reps are selfish and don't care about "We the People!"

Why charge people more for the devices they need. A tax on medical devices is bad for the people who need them most. Think before you vote.

Argument opposed

The medical device tax barely has an effect on consumer prices. Plus, this bill offers no way to make up for the lost tax revenue that the government would miss out on if the tax is repealed.

This congress tries to do anything to weaken the ACA, while offering no credible alternatives.

Revenue for the government. Right now, government needs to decrease spending and increase profits. This is a good source of revenue. Soldiers are willing to die for their country, citizens should be willing to pay for their country.

Tax was agreed to upon passage of ACA! Repeal is but an underhanded attempt to repeal the Health Care law after multiple vote attempts failed in the House!
