Elizabeth Warren — the liberal icon challenging Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) — said she would support repealing part of President Obama’s healthcare law.
Warren said in an op-ed that Congress should repeal the health law’s tax on medical devices. Massachusetts is home to several large device companies.
The healthcare law’s device tax will hit small, innovative firms especially hard and cause them to roll back their research budgets, Warren wrote in the trade publication Mass Device.
“With an appropriate offset, we can repeal the medical device tax without cutting health care coverage for millions of people or forcing Americans to fight the whole health care battle all over again,” she said.
