'Extenders' deal could include Cadillac tax delay

A broader package of tax extenders that lawmakers are working to iron out this week could include a two-year delay on the Cadillac tax and the medical device tax, plus a one-year delay on a health tax on insurers, Morning Consult reports. The broader tax package includes non-health-related provisions, and if negotiations for that overall package succeed, the healthcare provisions are likely to be included in the final deal, lobbyists tell the publication.

Still, it's unclear whether the deal will come together at all despite Democrats' best efforts, as Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) noted that "negotiations aren't going very well." Article
