Rep. Jordan: Obamacare Tax Hikes To Hit 'Pacemakers, Prosthetics, Other Vital Medical Equipment'

By Craig Bannister | November 30, 2012 | 12:40pm EST

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) warns that the Obamacare tax hikes set to kick in at the start of 2013 are "a big part of the fiscal cliff" that will hurt those in need of vital medical equipment.

Today, Republican Study Committee Chairman Jim Jordan issued the following statement highlighting the $1.058 trillion in higher taxes coming from ObamaCare over the next ten years. Many of the tax increases take effect on January 1, 2013:

"ObamaCare raises taxes on middle-income families, employers and investors. It hikes taxes on people with no health insurance, people with too little insurance and people with too much. Taxes are even going up on pacemakers, prosthetics, and other vital medical equipment."

"The ObamaCare tax hikes are a big part of the fiscal cliff. Stopping them should be part of the solution."
