Senator-elect Elizabeth Warren is living up to her promise to defend medical device makers, signing a letter sent this week to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) to ask for a delay to the medical device tax.

Warren joined 17 other Democratic senators and senators-elect to call for a stay of executive on the 2.3% sales tax taking effect on January 1.

Senators Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) co-sponsored the letter, asking that Senator Reid help them in efforts to "ensure that our country maintains its global leadership position in the medical technology industry and keeps good jobs here at home."
