Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-GA) issued the following statement after the House passed the Protect Medical Innovation Act, which repeals the medical device tax imposed by Obamacare:

“When it comes to healthcare, we still have a lot of work to do, but repealing the medical device tax is another step in the right direction. This hidden tax has had devastating impacts across country. It added additional costs to consumers, hurt small businesses, suppressed research and development, and resulted in job losses.

“Americans should have affordable, quality access to healthcare, which is still a priority of this Congress. Fighting for commonsense healthcare reforms, such as repealing the medical device tax, is one that every Republican and Democrat should support.”
