A clutch of lawmakers are calling on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) to delay implementation of the 2.3% medical device tax, hoping to push the levy past its January 1 start date.

Senators Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) led the letter, which was signed by 16 additional current and elected senators, 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."
