Repealing ObamaCare’s Medical Device Tax

June 18, 2015
Press Release

WASHINGTON – Today, the House of Representatives passed the Protect Medical Innovation Act, of which Congressman Bruce Poliquin is an original cosponsor, to repeal ObamaCare’s penalizing medical device tax. Congressman Poliquin released the following statement:

“ObamaCare’s penalizing medical device tax is wrong, it’s unlawful, and I am proud to have voted in favor of repealing it.

“For years, our hard-working businesses, like Hardwood Products and Puritan Companies in Guilford, have been penalized by ObamaCare’s medical device tax.

“Due to ObamaCare’s Medical Device Tax, Hardwood Products and Puritan Companies have to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in extra fees. Because of these fees, they cannot invest in new equipment that would create innovative medical supplies and provide more good-paying jobs for our Mainers.

“I’m proud to have voted in support of repealing ObamaCare’s penalizing medical device tax in order to help strengthen medical innovation, help our businesses grow and create more jobs in Maine’s Second District and beyond. I will continue to repeal the parts of ObamaCare that hurt our seniors, families and businesses.”
