Decker: If Tax Dies, Hospitals Should Suffer Consequences

Committee co-chair Sen. Decker said he can't understand why anyone would be opposed to the governor's plan to capture more federal medical assistance dollars through the assessment of a 1 percent tax on gross hospital revenues.

If the tax doesn't make it into the final bill, Decker said hospitals should suffer the consequences.

"If hospitals muster enough votes to kill it, I don't think we should give them any increase (in MA reimbursements) because they brought it on themselves," said the Weston Democrat.
Those eeeeeeeeeevil hospitals!
