New Bill Introduced to Repeal Medical Device Tax Gets Strong Bipartisan Support


On Tuesday, Congressman Erik Paulsen introduced another bill in an effort to repeal the 2.3 percent medical device tax. The Protect Medical Innovation Act received strong bipartisan support with 254 cosponsors, 27 of whom are Democrats.

“The medical device tax continues to stifle innovation, cost American jobs, and drive up health care costs despite bipartisan opposition in both houses of Congress,” Paulsen said in a statement. “With over 250 cosponsors [on] day one of the new session, it’s clear repealing this tax should be one of the priorities for the new Congress.”
