House Rep. Dan Maffei (D-N.Y.) this week introduced a new bill that seeks to repeal the 2.3% medical device tax, making up for the $30 billion in lost revenue by cutting tax breaks for big oil and gas companies.

The proposed pay-for may to be more popular with Democrats, who previously balked at attempts to recoup lost tax revenue by taking a stronger hand in reclaiming over-paid health insurance tax credits granted to families.
