Congressman Erik Paulsen says 181 federal lawmakers have pledged support to a bill that would repeal "innovation" tax.
Monday, February 11
Last week, I spent a lot of time in Minnesota visiting schools, small businesses, and hosting roundtables with local law enforcement and medical device innovators. I also had great participation in a telephone town hall meeting and several Congress on Your Corner events, which are more intimate one-on-one town hall style opportunities to hear directly from you. Thanks to everyone that participated; your feedback ensures I am able to represent you more effectively. And this week in Washington, I was busy rolling out my renewed effort to stop the medical device tax that is negatively affecting Minnesota's economy and stifling job creation.

by U.S. Congressman Erik Paulsen U.S. National Debt Balloons Past $16,000,000,000,000 This past Tuesday, our country marked an infamous day as our national debt grew past 16 trillion dollars. To put that into perspective that burden equates to more than $50,000 for each and every Minnesotan. We now have a debt that is larger than our entire nation’s GDP. This debt is not only a burden placed on our children and grandchildren, but it also continues to dampen the prospects of the economic recovery we should have seen long ago. To tackle our debt in a meaningful way and put our economy on the path towards sustainable growth, I will continue working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to control spending and enact tax reform that …
