The Mass. Medical Device Industry Council is asking Sen.-elect Scott Brown to put his money where his mouth was during the campaign for the late Sen. Ted Kennedy’s seat on Capital Hill.
During his successful run against Mass. Attorney General Martha Coakley, Brown visited Zoll Medical Corp.’s Chelmsford, Mass., headquarters, where he spoke about his opposition to a proposed tax on medical device makers to help pay for healthcare reform.
During the campaign stop at Zoll, the Republican then-candidate told MassDevice that he planned to vote against the healthcare reform bill if elected.
