House approves medical care device tax repeal

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Republican-led House of Representatives early on Sunday moved the government closer to a shutdown by rejecting the Democratic-led Senate’s supposed final offer for funding federal agencies beyond Monday.

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.
