Mike Pence and Luke Messer: Corporate Sellouts

In an article written by Lee Fang with the Nation, he disclosed why Luke Messer and Mike Pence are so adamant against Obamacare. It’s not because Obamacare is a “disaster” like they claim on Tea Party friendly Fox News, but it’s because they are being paid by corporate lobbyists to cry foul.

Medical device makers have profited big from our current healthcare system. Every article in the past decade on healthcare has indicated them as a problem for escalating costs, but guess what?

Republican lawmakers have structured 32 tax havens for them to avoid paying taxes. Now, President Obama has said no more free rides. This is why the Tea Party is making a fuss. Oh, and they know the popularity of Obamacare will kill their parties chances in 2014.

Check out Lee’s article, including the lobbyist letter demanding medical device taxes be repealed:
