OBAMA DONOR’S CORPORATION LAYS OFF EMPLOYEES DUE TO OBAMACARE

Stryker Corporation has announced that it will close its facility in Orchard Park, New York, eliminating 96 jobs next month. It will also counter the medical device tax in Obamacare by eliminating 5% of their global workforce, an estimated 1,170 positions.

Jon Stryker is heir to the Stryker Corporation, one of the largest medical device and equipment manufacturers in the world. Stryker’s grandfather was the surgeon who invented the mobile hospital bed. The company now sells $8.3 billion worth of hospital beds, artificial joints, medical cameras, and medical software every year.

Stryker, a member of the Forbes 400 list, was one of the top five donors to the Obama campaign. Having donated $2 million to the Priorities USA Action super PAC, Stryker also gave $66,000 in contributions to Obama and the Democrat Party.

Prior to the 2012 election, Stryker contributed millions to help Democrat candidates in his home state of Michigan. He also gave nearly $250 million to groups supporting gay rights, transgenderism, and the conservation of apes. In January, his Arcus Foundation donated $23 million to Kalamazoo College for an endowment to fund a center for social justice leadership.

Stryker’s corporation is part of an industry that has been a big loser at the hands of Obamacare. Having refused to get on board with the White House and the Senate Finance Committee when the law was being crafted in 2009, the medical device industry was punished with an excise tax of 2.3% of their revenues, regardless of whether they make a profit.

    Oh, it’s a trend for sure, right to part-time land.

    Which is funny… Because the unintended consequence of this liberal healthcare grab? Now folks need to drive across town one way then all the way to the other side and maybe even the next town over to get to work.

    I read this guys bio and I’ll bet he doesn’t know dick about the company that he and his sisters own. I suspect that he doesn’t really give a shit about employees being laid off because as a rich trust fund kiddy he spends all his time spending money on causes that get new species named after him and really can’t relate to someone who has to work for a living. It would be nice if his employees called him out it public the odd time he shows up at the company.

    Have I ever mentioned how pissed off I am about obamacare evaporating my health insurance? It really pisses me off that after 28 years of paying my premiums, my choice of health insurance just simply goes away. The $30K or so I’ve invested into my financial security just in case something bad happens to me turns out to be a bad choice…I could have used that money to invest into Apple or Microsoft back in the 80′s, but I thought being responsible would be a wise and prudent choice….

    As it turns out, being irresponsible pays off. Under obama, having nothing is the way to go, because if you have nothing, people with something are forced to give more of the stuff you didn’t have in the first place, because they have stuff you want but don’t have. If you work hard to get stuff, obama will just take it away and give it to people that want stuff because they have no stuff because you worked hard to get stuff and took it from people that want stuff because their teachers told them they deserve stuff because they are gay or black or indian or green or pink or transgender or maybe a fire truck….

    I think it may be time to seek a job at the Twentieth Century Motor Company…they still hiring?

    oh, and:

    Fuck You Barrack Hussein Obama, and the foreign stundent aid loan you rode in on!

    Also part of this cabal, right here in Colorado, we have Pat Stryker. She’s a motherfucker who is part of what is labeled The Gang of Four.

    She’s used her INHERITED wealth to fund every REgressive running in state races. Consequently, her and her fucking cohorts have turned a solid red, business friendly state into the GD mess on our hands now.

    In 2010 Republicans eked out a 1 seat lead in the state Senate and we were able to hold the line on our far left assdouche Gov. and his idiotic schemes. Sadly, Stryker pumped millions into the election this time and flipped the Senate so now we have a legislature and executive branch solely in the hands of REgressives.

    Add to that, probably one of the most REgressives SC in the country along with 10s of 1,000s of CA locusts and watch as Colorado does the big swirly.

    It’s a sad day here. I just don’t get these REgressives-seriously I have a couple multimillionaire/billionaire clients that are up from their bootstraps men and are REgressives. Look at this douchenozzle in NY. He had to have known about the medical device tax. He had to have known it would adversely affect his bottom line yet he donates millions to the very person that is engineering this???? Please, explain that.

    REgesssivism is truly a mental disorder
