Rep. Erik Paulsen (R-Minn.) asks for grassroots help in rallying support for his bill to repeal the medica device tax, which now has 199 co-sponsors in the House but lackluster support in the Senate.

Rep. Erik Paulsen (R-Minn.) is amping up his ground game to win support for a repeal of the 2.3% medical device excise tax, asking online for grassroots help in his campaign to win support from the Democrat-controlled U.S. Senate.

Paulsen sent an open letter to members of the Medical Devices Group on LinkedIn yesterday, asking for help in urging their senators to sign on to a companion repeal bill sponsored by Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) in the upper chamber.
