    I believe Clinton(WTO) was president when all this outsourcing to China and India started and he was no conservative or right winger. The truth is when it comes to sticking their tongues up the assholes of business owners to toss their salad the democrats are just as guilty of tossing the salad of big business as the republicans are.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    It's not like Boston scientific and other medical device manufactureres didn't warn of this when the bill was first passed. From a Boston hearad article from May 2010.

    Massachusetts medical-device companies say they’ll cut back on operational costs – and jobs – after a planned 2.3 percent tax on their products is implemented in 2013, according to a new survey.
    Mass. device firms see health law as burden - BostonHerald.com

    I'm shocked that raising taxes over 20 billion per year on an industry would affect how those businesses act and that they would attempt to avoid as much of those taxes as possible.

    The changes put forth in Obamacare have already affected the companies investment and R&D (they are making less of it).

    I would be surprised if more companies in the industry didn't make this decision in the not too distant future.

    Neither. Both will work to maintain and proliferate the status quo
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
