Device tax opponent downgrades from 'repeal' to 'delay'

Rather than pushing for an outright repeal, he told the publication that he instead sees a "realistic opportunity for maybe delaying the tax." This is a battle he sees starting up after the election, according to the article, though that could be in question if the Democrats win in November.  Story
