Heh: 16 Democrat senators who voted for Obamacare try to delay implementation of 'job killing' Obamacare tax

Didn’t anybody in Congress understand what Nancy was saying?

From Byron York at the Washington Examiner:

Sixteen Democratic senators who voted for the Affordable Care Act are asking that one of its fundraising mechanisms, a 2.3 percent tax on medical devices scheduled to take effect January 1, be delayed. Echoing arguments made by Republicans against Obamacare, the Democratic senators say the levy will cost jobs — in a statement Monday, Sen. Al Franken called it a “job-killing tax” — and also impair American competitiveness in the medical device field.

The senators, who made the request in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, are Franken, Richard Durbin, Charles Schumer, Patty Murray, John Kerry, Kirsten Gillibrand, Amy Klobuchar, Joseph Lieberman, Ben Nelson, Robert Casey, Debbie Stabenow, Barbara Mikulski, Kay Hagan, Herb Kohl, Jeanne Shaheen, and Richard Blumenthal. All voted for Obamacare.

Two other Democrats, senators-elect Joe Donnelly and Elizabeth Warren, also signed the letter. Donnelly voted for Obamacare as a member of the House. Warren was not in Congress at the time.

Here’s part of the letter they sent to Harry Reid:


Shorter version: Please help us protect the economy and jobs from the consequences of what we have done!

It’s a simple strategy: When the chickens come home to roost, just ask Harry Reid not to let them in the coop.

Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) is among Democrats seeking to delay implementation of a “job killing tax” imposed by a law that was supported by Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY)
