  •  The tax isn't that great policy (1+ / 0-)

    it'd just be passed on to patients in the form of higher premiums, so I'm not sure it is all that consistent with the goals of the ACA, nor is there a good reason to incentivize doctors to prefer non-devices (drugs, therapy) to devices when they compete.  

    I think it's important that they be in separate bills, though.  Passing the clean CR and DL should be a precondition for the Senate holding a vote on the device tax, and since the Republicans are now proposing a $3 billion annual increase in the deficit or so, they have to come up with offsets from their priorities.  

    Difficult, difficult, lemon difficult.
