Rep. Sander Levin, D-Mich., said Wednesday that he plans to introduce a bill to provide tax breaks for small businesses that hire new employees or increase wages as a substitute for a bill being pushed by House Republicans to repeal the medical device tax in the health care law.

Erik Paulsen, R-Minn., passed in the House Ways and Means Committee on Thursday, along with several companion bills (see House Panel Passes Repeal of Medical Device Tax).
