Paulsen and Gerlach: Medical Device Tax Hinders Innovation

President Barack Obama has said repeatedly that our goal must be to “win the future.” No one can argue with that sentiment. But nothing defines the future more compellingly than a medical technology sector that is creating jobs, improving lives and developing exciting new innovations to confront and conquer disease and disability.

If Congress and the administration truly want to win the future, an essential first step is to support our effort to repeal this destructive and counterproductive medical device tax.

Rep. Erik Paulsen (R-Minn.) is co-chairman of the House Medical Technology Caucus, of which Rep. Jim Gerlach (R-Pa.) is a member.
