Why Stop At 2.3% – Will Lawmakers Continue To Increase The Cost Of Health Care To Pay For The Increased Cost Of Healthcare?

Sunday, February 10th, 2013

To uninformed Americans, the 2.3%  medical device excise tax must seem like a painless way to fund the increasingly expensive Affordable Care Act. And since patients are more likely to blame providers rather than politicians for the increased treatment costs, where is the incentive to stop at 2.3%?

Will common sense cause repeal of the excise tax? Or will lawmakers continue to increase the cost of healthcare to pay for the increased cost of healthcare? I still like to think that as long as there is transparency in healthcare, common sense stands a fighting chance.
