    Welch Allyn, a company that manufactures medical diagnostic equipment in central New York, announced in September that they would be laying off 275 employees, or roughly 10% of their workforce over the next three years

    Dana Holding Corp.
    As recently as a week ago, a global auto parts manufacturing company in Ohio known as Dana Holding Corp., warned their employees of potential layoffs, citing "$24 million over the next six years in additional U.S. health care expenses".

    Stryker
    One of the biggest medical device manufacturers in the world, Stryker will close their facility in Orchard Park, New York, eliminating 96 jobs in December. Worse, they plan on countering the medical device tax in Obamacare by slashing 5% of their global workforce - an estimated 1,170 positions.

    Medtronic
    In March of 2010, medical device maker Medtronic warned that Obamacare taxes could result in a reduction of precisely 1,000 jobs. That plan became reality when the company cut 500 positions over the summer, with another 500 set for the end of 2013.
    Others
    A short list of other companies facing future layoffs at the hands of Obamacare:
    Smith & Nephew - 770 layoffs
    Abbott Labs - 700 layoffs
    Covidien - 595 layoffs
    Kinetic Concepts - 427 layoffs
    St. Jude Medical - 300 layoffs
    Hill Rom - 200 layoffs

    It's just getting started. The voters voted for this and in reality, NO AMOUNT of republican compromise is going to change it.

    CEO says prayer, announces lay offs.

    After Obama reelection CEO reads prayer to staff, announces layoffs - The Washington Post

    Robert E. Murray read a prayer to a group of company staff members on the day after the election, lamenting the direction of the country and asking: “Lord, please forgive me and anyone with me in Murray Energy Corp. for the decisions that we are now forced to make to preserve the very existence of any of the enterprises that you have helped us build.”

    And the beat goes on. Here, katz uses a source in the coal industry, Murray Energy, to provide the con point he wants. Never, ever use an impartial source, katz. That would be too rational.

    One can not point anything out to you, ed. You are delusional. And have insufficient brain cells to understand anything. And really do not want to. Just keep posting that dogma, ed. Does make you look like an idiot (well, of course it would. you ARE an idiot).
