New Medical Device Taxes Raise Concerns
Indiana Public Media

Members of the Indiana congressional delegation held a forum in Indianapolis Monday to hear testimony on the issue. Beginning in 2013, an excise tax of a little more than 2 percent will be placed on the sale of medical devices in the United States.

Dane Miller is on the board of directors at Biomet, a company based out of Warsaw, Indiana. He says the tax will limit innovation and expansion in the United States.

Last Friday, Americans for Prosperity’s Cut Spending Now tour made a stop in Evansville, Indiana. The purpose of the meeting was to highlight the runaway federal government spending that has plunged our country into record levels of debt. Already our nation borrows nearly 40 cents of every dollar it spends!

This is a nonpartisan crisis facing all citizens. As the congressional “super committee” deliberates their course of action, it is more important than ever that we get this right. Our country cannot endure more of the status quo. We need a bold solution that bravely takes this challenge head-on.
