Even though the medical device tax is supposed to apply to manufacturers and importers, the costs just get passed on to consumers. Passing those costs off on patients makes healthcare more expensive.
The medical device tax barely has an effect on consumer prices. Plus, this bill offers no way to make up for the lost tax revenue that the government would miss out on if the tax is repealed.
