Hagan seeks delay on taxes for medical devices

Sen. Kay Hagan is leading an effort to delay a new tax on medical devices which is part of President Obama's health care law.

Hagan has joined with Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, both Democrats, saying delaying the tax, which takes effect in January, should be considered in part of any talks surrounding the fiscal cliff.
The tax is designed to raise about $20 billion over a decade, but the senators said it threatens an industry that employs more than 400,000 people across the country, including 24,500 in North Carolina.

Hagan and Klobuchar wrote a letter to Senate leader Harry Reid.
