Toomey: Pres. Could Drop Med. Device Portion, End Shutdown
As the government shutdown enters its third week, Pennsylvania U.S. Senator, Pat Toomey says, it’s apparent that the president will not sign legislation that de-funds the affordable care act, but he believes the President may negotiate on another part of the act.
“Hopefully, repeal some of the more egregious laws in Obama Care that have been acknowledged on both sides. I’ve long been an advocate of repealing the Medical Device Tax, part because that enjoys very bipartisan support.”
Toomey adds, two thirds of Senate Democrats are in agreement with Republicans on the medical device issue.
