The National Republican Congressional Committee launches a petition campaign, demanding that more Democratic senators sign on in support of repealing a 2.3% levy on medtech sales or else "pave the way for the job-killing medical device tax."

NRCC's medical device tax repeal petition

The National Republican Congressional Committee launched a petition campaign to rally support for repeal of the 2.3% medical device tax contained in President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act.

The group sent the petition to a handful of Democratic senators, asking that they either sign their names in support of striking the levy or "pave the way for the job-killing medical device tax."

In a press release cloned for each senator, the NRCC warned that the targeted lawmakers have "consistently protected [their] party's ability to spend wildly at the cost of the American people and economy."
