It is a funny liberal concept though. A tax on medical devices as part of the "Affordable Care Act"
That pretty much sums up everything you need to know about leftynomics.
Bargaining chip, ehh? Good call.
I think the tax raises 28b (by memory, I could be wrong), and Dems have been willing to lose that with an offset in revenue. And the Cruz baby tantrum cost 24b, so that's kinda amusing. Shall be called the Ted Cruz ego tax from this point on.
Shame tea-brains are the most narcissistic group ever imagined, you before your country.
