Paulsen wants another shot at device tax repeal

Rep. Erik Paulsen (R-MN) is looking to restart the medical device tax repeal effort, planning to introduce another House bill that would strike the 2.3% charge from the Affordable Care Act, his office told Mass Device. Paulsen sponsored a measure to repeal the tax last year, and while that bill passed the House, no one in the Democrat-controlled Senate brought it up for a vote. Now that a new Congress has been sworn in, the whole process must begin anew, but, this time, tax opponents believe they're more likely to find bipartisan support, especially in the Senate. News
