Lipana on Medical Device Tax

Joshua Lipana writes at the blog for The Objective Standard: "Cheers to Bipartisan Support for Repealing the Medical-Device Tax".

Even if some of the supporters are driven by political expediency rather than a principled commitment to free markets, this could be a step in the right direction.

And public pressure can help in this regard.  As Milton Friedman once observed, "The way you solve things is by making it politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right things."
