Senate majority leader Harry Reid called the Obamacare medical device tax "stupid" at a briefing today on Capitol Hill:
"Listen, I know you have been listening, but we want a clean CR--that's what we're going to get," said Reid. "If they want to shut down the government, here's how much time they have to figure out it: 4 days, 11 hours, 22 minutes, and 15 seconds. No, they can play around all they want. Some of the biggest supporters for doing away with the stupid tax--I'm sorry, I shouldn't have said that--doing away with that tax have told me they won't support that on CR."
Reid was referring to the medical device tax in Obamacare.
