Medical device manufacturer Stryker of Kalamazoo layoff of 1000 workers is because of Obamacare according to the Weekly Standard:
" Late last week a Stryker spokesperson told me that Obamacare will cost the company fully 20 percent of its total research and development investments."Huh. But but Rick?
" I don't think it's the right answer. However, it is the law of the land, and the real question is: What can we do to make it a positive for Michigan?"Oh right. Positive.
Just suck it up and play nice while the nice man in the whitehouse showers our Great Lakes State with golden raindrops.

Just a reminder of the unintended[?] consequence of health care manipulation and control by big government.
While we are talking in other stories on RightMichigan.com about compacts and severability, the 3000 plus pages of Frankenstein legislation we tenderly call "Obamacare" is rife with triggers, taxes and penalties. One of the taxes callously affecting a part of the very superior medical care we enjoy. Manufacturing. The part that is being transformed into a memory operated by billionaire and progressive Jon Stryker:
"Stryker, a maker of artificial hips and knees based in Kalamazoo, Mich., announced in November that it would slash 5 percent of its global workforce (an estimated 1,000 workers) this coming year to reduce costs related to Obamacare's taxes and mandates."
Those "global workers" are likely more expensive here.
I wonder if Mr. Stryker feels conflicted about his support of progressive causes, and relationship with leftists, and the money making business side which provides not only a comfortable living, but real high paying jobs?
I'll bet he doesn't complain too much.
If he did, he wouldn't have a leg to stand on.
