Pennsylvania Republican Charlie Dent, who will serve as chairman of the House Ethics Committee in the next Congress, says GOP should focus on repealing the medical device tax immediately.
Rep. Charlie Dent (R-Pa.) says repealing the 2.3% medical device excise tax should be 1 of the GOP’s top priorities after it assumes control of both houses of Congress next month.
Dent told a local television news station that repealing the medical device tax along with building the Keystone Pipeline and restoring a 40-hour work week were all major priorities for the GOP-led legislature.
“Those are 3 issues that will likely go to the president quickly, that enjoy bi-partisan support in the House and Senate and the president is going to have to make a decision,” he said.
