Medical giant Stryker cuts 1,170 jobs, citing ObamaCare

By Perry Chiaramonte

Published November 16, 2012

Medical supply giant Stryker is the latest company to announce job cuts in anticipation of coming costs associated with ObamaCare, even though the man who inherited a fortune from the company's founder is a fan.

The company will cut 1,170 jobs, or five percent of its worldwide workforce, despite the fact that the founder's grandson was one of the largest contributors to President Obama’s re-election campaign. Medical tech scion Jon Stryker, whose net worth is currently estimated at $1.2 billion, contributed $2 million to the Priorities USA Action super PAC and has given $66,000 in contributions to Obama and the Democratic Party. Stryker does not run the company.

Of course they are. Everyone needs a scapegoat and considering few have even read Obamacare information, they go for what they perceive to be the common enemy.

As Hostess is no longer going to exist, who will they blame?
