    Michigan voted for Obama and Michigan's two Senators voted for ObamaCare, so it looks like Michigan gets what Michigan voted for.

    From your article from their CEO:

    "These actions are part of our ongoing focus on quality, innovation and cost, and position the company to continue to provide strong, consistent growth in a changing environment," CEO Stephen MacMillan said.

    Where did he mention Health Care?

    Yep! Medical Device Taxes are part of the ObamaCare Health Law.

    in the lead paragraph, nitwit

    "Stryker, the Kalamazoo-based maker of artificial hips and knees, will cut 5% of its global workforce by the end of next year to reduce costs in the face of new fees on device makers required by the U.S. health care law."


    it's good thing i didn't know better, or i'd swear you were a partisan extremist. :rofl:

    If that didn't convince anyone the words "changing environment" should.

    No one trusts this dictator, no one. They are going to pull in and wait for stability.

    The 2.3% excise tax is only part of the reason for the cutbacks. Restructuring is the primary reason. Government is as usually a convenient scapegoat.
