    Now, the very actors who are most responsible for ignoring public demands and jamming through Obamacare are trying to "delay" or repeal a major element of their law, warning that it could stifle medical innovation and kill jobs.
    Welcome to the party, guys. You're about two years too late:

    U.S. Sen. Bob Casey and 16 other Senate Democrats want the medical device tax - included in the 2010 healthcare reform law that they supported - postponed.
    Democratic Senators Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken pointed to thousands of high-paying jobs that device companies support in Minnesota, headquarters to such giant devicemakers as Medtronic and St. Jude Medical. The industry has painted the tax as a job killer that would hurt innovation.
    "The delay would give us the opportunity to repeal or reduce that tax," said Klobuchar, co-author of a letter sent to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid seeking the delay. Repeal is the ultimate goal of the letter's 18 signers,

    Senate Democrats: Um, Let's "Postpone" Obamacare's Medical Device Tax - Guy Benson

    Remember Congress members.. Pelosi said" we have to pass to know what's in it!!!"

    AND REMEMBER you idiots that voted YES???
    There WERE NEVER 50 million "uninsured" when 10 million are NOT citizens, 14 million are ALREADY COVERED and 18 million that never needed,wanted health insurance!

    8 million truly that want and need could have been covered by the simple taxing of 10% of Lawyers $100 billion (JUST AS Obamacare is taxing tanning salons..) and use that to pay the claims of those truly "uninsured"!

    But it was just total LIE.. there were never 50 million "uninsured" yet these congress members NEVER knew that or else they wouldn't have thought they were doing something good that is obviously SO bad!!!!

    It would have helped if they read it before voting for it.

    If they knew this provision was in the law why did they not complain when it was proposed? Why at the last minute is it suddenly noticed?

    No.. they didn't know these provisions were in it! Again Pelosi.. have to pass to know what's in it!
    But more importantly... WHY didn't any of these 16 or for that fact even conservatives QUESTION WHY the need for Obamacare when the number of 50 million "uninsured" was phony in the first place! I mean the Census told us 10 million of 50 were not citizens!
    Studies have shown 14 million are already covered but don't know it under Medicaid!
    and using 18 million who DON"T NEED or WANTED are under 34 and make over $50K... counted as uninsured was totally bogus!

    But what was known was health care costs of $650 billion was driven as the experts report, (physicians!!) they send duplicate tests, specialist referrals and why???
    FEAR of lawsuits! Think about it! 10% tanning salon taxes because cancer caused by tanning.. YET not one effort to reduce $650 billion in fear of lawsuits!
    Why couldn't they have taxed 10% on lawyers $100 billion a year and used to pay the claims of the truly 8 million uninsured?
    Problem solved because the tax would be tied to declining $650 billion defensive medicine and THAT would also reduce the health care costs!
    That and Medicare wouldn't be overbilled sometimes by 6,000% by hospitals making up for "unreimbursed" expenses that they cover by padding and passing on to Medicare/insurance!

    Tax it and you get less of it, always works that way, always will. The commies voted for it, let them own it. The same thing will happen with the tax increases Maobama is demanding now, he knows it, he doesn't care, it's all about the win with him.

    Pelosi was correct...

    Of course she didn't know what was going to be in the bill. There were two bills at the time, one in the House and one in the Senate. Until the bill passed reconciliation she had no way of knowing what was in it

    Og course, Retard Republicans think it means you vote on bills you haven't read
