Politics and pessimism aren't slowing medical device tax repeal efforts
Spirits remain high among medical device industry advocates pushing for repeal of the 2.3% medtech tax, despite political obstacles.
Political roadblocks aren't dampening the spirits of medtech industry advocates pushing for repeal of the looming medical device tax, despite the fact that the levy's slated to take effect in less than 3 weeks.
Even President Barack Obama's on-camera refusal to support a delay for the medical device tax last night hasn't curbed the enthusiasm.
"Make no mistake – repeal is the goal," AdvaMed spokeswoman Wanda Moebius told MassDevice.com in a phone interview, adding that the lobbying group remains "cautiously optimistic" that a win is on the horizon.
