Will incoming Mass. Senator Warren keep true to pledge to repeal medical device tax?
Medical device industry stakeholders hope Senator-elect Elizabeth Warren will hold true to campaign pledges to push for repeal of the medical device tax.
Senator-elect Elizabeth Warren will be expected to live up to a campaign pledge to help repeal the medical device tax now that she's won a coveted position representing the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, one of the nation's largest medtech hubs.
Warren replaced a "visible leader" in defeating challenger Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.), and she needs to make good on promises she made to repeal the 2.3% excise tax hitting medical device makers in January, Zoll Medical CEO Rick Packer told industry officials in Boston Wednesday.
