MDMA Statement on Tax Reform Blueprint

WASHINGTON, DC - MDMA President and CEO Mark Leahey issued the following statement today in response to the tax reform blueprint that was issued by Republican Congressional leadership:

“MDMA appreciates the hard work that went into creating the outlines for tax reform, and looks forward to the establishment of a more competitive and fair tax code for medical technology innovators,” said Mark Leahey, President and CEO of MDMA.  â€œIf one of tax reforms central goals is to spur job creation and growth in the manufacturing sector, than ultimately it most include a full repeal of the medical device tax.  Putting an end to this devastating policy will spur the investments in R&D and high tech manufacturing that countless communities are desperate for across the United States.  MDMA will continue to work with Congress to help ensure this dynamic industry can play a central role in spurring economic growth, while reducing the costs of care, and repealing the medical device tax would accomplish both of these important priorities for our nation.”
