U.S. House approves medical care device tax repeal
WASHINGTON, Sept 29

In a mostly partisan vote, the House defied a White House veto threat and added to a Senate-passed spending bill a provision repealing a medical device tax intended to help fund President Barack Obama's landmark healthcare law.
