Brian Bilbray Wants A Tax Break For His Big Campaign Donors

On June 7, Rep. Brian Bilbray joined Reps. Erik Paulsen and Jim Gerlach in a Roll Call op-ed opposing the 2.3 percent excise tax on medical devices that is part of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

Bilbray says the tax would mean $30 billion in savings for the manufacturers of medical devices. What he didn’t mention is that a sizable chunk of that windfall could benefit him too—through big campaign contributions.
