Family-Owned Company Being Burdened By Obamacare

LEBANON – Scott Brown today visited Keene Medical Products to tour the facility and learn more about issues affecting their company as part of the ongoing “Obamacare Isn’t Working” tour.  The family-owned company has been particularly strained by Obamacare’s 2.3 percent medical device tax that went into effect in 2013. 

“Keene Medical Products offers cutting-edge medical supplies to people in need, and this family-owned business is being unfairly burdened by the bad policies in Obamacare,” said Brown.  “Hardworking Granite Staters should not have their businesses placed in jeopardy due to Washington red tape. That’s why I support the repeal of this law to get government off their back so they can continue to grow and hire workers.”

Keene Medical Products is a family-owned and operated company with twelve locations in Northern New England and 142 employees.  They provide home health care products and services, ranging from home medical equipment to stairway lifts, to clients for medical purposes and to improve quality of life. 

"We appreciate Scott Brown coming by to visit our facility and learn more about our concerns related to Obamacare.  In more ways than one, it is making it difficult for our company to maximize our potential,” said Keith Filiault, Owner of Keene Medical Products.

During the “Obamacare Isn’t Working” tour Scott Brown has stopped at a variety of businesses across the state, including medical imaging and paper companies, where Obamacare has brought on a host of devastating tax hikes and higher health care insurance premium costs for employees, causing perpetual uncertainty and hampering the local economy.
