    In China.

    Boston Scientific to lay off 1,200-plus - The Boston Globe

    I am sure that by now someone is salivating with the thought that they get to call me a liar. The truth is that these firms warned about this happening 14 months ago.

    Mass. device firms see health law as burden - BostonHerald.com

    Congratulations to Obama, Reid, and Pelosi for another job killing tax.

    Pelosi was right!

    We have to pass it to see what is in it

    A several layer problem with this one.

    Loss of jobs
    Less product which may result in higher costs.

    One of the more insidious sneaky low down dirty tricks the dems pulled, was sticking a real estate transfer tax into the Obamacare bill.
    How the federal government can give itself the right to tax home sales is a mystery to me.

    Don't forget that Obama gave 2 billion to Brazil for oil exploration for the last 2 years.
    Jobs for China and Brazil but not for Americans.
    Don't forget Obama ideology - " Redistribution of Wealth". Marxism at it's finest.

    In 2010 my real estate agent who is a Democrat flatly told me there was no real estate tax in ObamaCare™, even got huffy about it.

    Fast forward to this summer and the man had lost a few inches of height, and was deeply depressed, any wonder why.

    None. It seems the hope he got was full of change....

    That wasnt the only thing they snuck by.

    Many are unaware that small contractors are now treated as if they were big business if they have 5 or more employees. Do you think they will hire or expand? If the jobs necessitate hiring do you think they will hire guys with families so the fine can be triggered.


    I can tell you no they wont and I wont.

    The thought hasn't occurred to you that BSC just sees a profitable opportunity in China, did it?

    Of course not, because that isn't the way you roll, is it?
