US shutdown: Quick device tax win unlikely but lobby won’t go away anytime soon

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Overnight reports show that elected officials on both sides of the US political divide are sticking to their positions. As threatened, the US government was partially “shut down” on 1 October, for lack of agreement in Congress on the federal budget. The Republicans refused to back budget proposals over discontent with compulsory purchasing of health insurance under “Obamacare”, and the specific part of the health reform that levies a tax on device sales.
