Dems Ask for Delay to Obamacare Med Device Tax They Voted for in the First Place

Medical Device Tax is just one of 20 Obamacare Taxes.

In a letter to Majority Leader Harry Reid, 18 Democrat senators and senators-elect have asked for “a delay in the implementation” of the Obamacare medical device tax.  Like most of the significant tax increases in Obamacare, the medical device tax is scheduled to take effect on Jan. 1, 2013, conveniently after the 2012 presidential election.

Each of the 18 Democrat signatories voted for or supported Obamacare in the first place.  And now they want a sweetheart exemption from one of its most onerous provisions. Even in Washington DC, that shows a lot of gall.

The signatories to the letter are as follows:

SNIP:  Those on that “list” need to be voted out .
But that goes without saying.

    I don’t care what the tax is on the new Spiked Tip Anal Cattle Prod. As long as it gets used on the Gang Of 18.

    Incompetence does even begin to define these losers. Where else could they seek employment. Politicians are where loser dumb shit attorneys go to make money. This shit makes me sick. They need to pay a steep penalty. We need justice.

    They sent the letter to Harry Reid, who is a monstrous waste of senate flesh when it comes to being some sort of “majority leader.” Harry will probably do what he has done for the past five years – nothing.

    In addition, those families will now also have their interest, dividend, and capital-gains income subject to the 3.8 percent Medicare tax, a $123 billion hit to the economy. At a time when the economy desperately needs more risk-taking and investment, we are about to make it harder for entrepreneurs to put their capital to work. And this tax will also fall heavily on many small businesses.

    I’ll bet Boehner will go for it if they remove the tanning salon tax also.

    Has it ever occurred to these Democrat Progressives to shove it up the a$$ of the speaker who put this before them and threatened them to vote for it or resign? They could easily in the upcoming Dimmo Caucus vote out that syphillitic old scabbed cunny, but will they??? no way….they will chew off their own hands and feet first…dimwits and village idiots to the man…
