The Obama administration earlier this year defended the medical device tax, saying companies actually stand to benefit from the law. lol

Well, in the Alice in Wonderland world of Obamaland, I bet that lie was foisted upon the public by the Obamaland spin machine i.e. that tax increases on their products will benefit companies and our dutiful press just put their own by line on it and sent it out.
Of course after the election, all of this begins to hit the fan. Amazing what a month can accomplish.
...”The alternate universe this Administration and its supporters live in is truly amazing. Up is down, hot is cold etc”...
I have heard recently that neurologists, the docs who treat many of the diseases of old age are being targeted for cutbacks that could herald their extinction. This is probably happening because those who are instructed to makes cuts across the board are ignorant “lay” men and women who have not a clue about the medical needs of a complex society. Thus, the excellent medical system we have is going to go away and will leave unspeakable agonies in it’s wake. To illustrate the insanity of this..It would be like handing over the U.S. military to a 12 year old. The government is famous for one thing..Making sure that the non-experts become lords over the experts.
If I were a Republican leader today i would get up and say the following:
We Republicans are against the elimination or delay of this tax going into effect. We are taking this stand so that the American people can finally understand what the incompetent economic policies passed by the Obama adminsitration and its allies in both the Congress and the media actually mean so that the next time voters go into the voting booth they will finally understand what progressive economic policies are all about.
We are sorry for the layoffs that will occur but sometimes the best long term interests of the country are served by the actual implementation of the policies the voters voted for.
We hope that every American takes the time to learn about the term unintended consequences, which governs the conservative principles of not being activist when it comes to government policy and remembers the party that voted to implement this anti-jobs policy.
When enough Americans have felt the pain of progressivism they will think more before voting.
Thank you and good luck.
Prepare for many layoffs in the medical field. Many doctors will retire early rather than tolerate this nobamacare crap. That will result in many layoffs...especially in private practices. Good luck everyone.
