Obamacare will now begin taxing life saving products. From St. Louis Business Journal:

Adding to Stereotaxis  financial burden next year will be a new excise tax imposed on medical device companies under federal health-care reform legislation.

Beginning Jan. 1, 2013, the federal government will impose a 2.3 percent excise tax on the sale of medical devices. The tax will be imposed on the manufacturer, producer or importer of the medical devices, and the levies are expected to produce $20 billion over a decade to help pay for expanded health coverage.
