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.  “If 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.”
