House Representatives Erik Paulsen (R-Minn.) and Ron Kind (D-Wisc.) are looking for immediate action on the medical device tax.

The House of Representatives' lead medtech tax repeal bill co-sponsors urged immediate action to strike what they called an "onerous policy that is harming the great American success story."

House Reps. Erik Paulsen (R-Minn.) and Ron Kind (D-Wisc.) called for immediate action in finding a viable way to replace the $30 billion the medical device tax is slated to generate over the next 10 years.

"The urgency is real, and it's time to act," the pair said in an op-ed penned for the Minnesota Star Tribune. "The impact of the tax is already being felt through layoffs at device manufacturers around the country."
