Medical companies brace for 'devastating' ObamaCare tax, prepare for layoffs

Let me see if I have this right. I would be happy to pay a 2.3 tax on my medical supplies especially since it supports the Affordable Health Care Act. Medical supply companies on the other end will be happy to fuck as many employees as they can as a retaliation to having to pay a 2.3 percent tax they could easily pass on to me.

1. Yes, I am sure paying an extra 2.3% is going to devastate the billionaires

The CEO of Medtronic may just have to get by with one less yacht in his fleet, it will be truly devastating.

3. Be glad you'll get increased volume when you are way past break-even.

Quit whining about the continuation of profitable business, and be glad you haven't been nationalized.

4. I'm not going to google it but posts on the ACA posted here shows that it has provisions to hire

all the workers at private insurers as government employees with equal salaries and benefits doing the same jobs. I'm doing 5 things at once here. Look it up, but it won't be easy to find it mixed in these threads. The most posts on this were done by Pro Sense and kpete and I also posted but not nearly as much.
