Which 2015 Republican Presidential Candidate is Best for Medtech? Lindsey Graham

   Lindsey Graham  

 Lindsey Graham

This year, Lindsey Graham cosponsored Senate Bill 149, the Medical Device Access and Innovation Protection Act, to eliminate the medical device excise tax.

Despite enrolling in the ACA, Graham—a U.S. Senator from South Carolina since 2003—called the federal health insurance program an “albatross” and “lead balloon.”

He says, “...President Obama and his Democratic allies in Congress rammed through their hastily and deeply flawed legislation to create Obamacare, apparently without even proofreading their own bill. The result has been a disaster from day one.”
