Medical Company Blames Obamacare For Layoffs of Nearly 100 People
"Joe Metzger, senior vice president of corporate communications for the company, tells the Memphis Business Journal that they were “not immune” to the tax burden.

“Unfortunately, and in order to absorb this cost burden into our business, this has meant less than 100 positions have been made redundant across various departmental functions in our Tennessee and Massachusetts sites,” Metzger told the Business Journal. “The company is providing the affected employees with a comprehensive severance package and outplacement support.”

Oh, and I hope that all who are laid off voted for obama, but sadly most obama supporters are takers, not makers.

Link says it was due to the 2.3% excise tax on medical devices.

About 7% of its workforce.

They knew it was coming and delayed pretty long.

oblama wants it this way - all on the dole.

Actually no, you are wrong.

Most of the "Taker-states" i.e.: the ones who suck massive amounts of federal dollars out and have large amounts of people living on welfare are Red-States who vote predominantly Republican.

So, sorry, again, its just the actual math isn't really supporting your belief structure.

the takers move to the states who offer the most benefits, then they move to the cities who give the most benefits where they then overwhelm the voting with percentages like 141% of the people in obamavilles voted for obama. we all know what is happening here. those of us who work for a living are damn well out-numbered by those who VOTE for a living.

Republicans work democrats make excuses.

I left my union due to its support of Wisonsin AWOLs awhile back and their continued support of the smirker in chief.

I hope they lose more members.

good for you. i know it is not always possible but i always urge people to not take jobs where they have to join a union to work. unions rarely have the best interest of the worker in mind. their main objective is power and money for themselves.

Re: Medical Company Blames Obamacare For Layoffs of Nearly 100 People
"Labor unions enthusiastically backed the Obama administration’s health-care overhaul when it was up for debate. Now that the law is rolling out, some are turning sour.

Union leaders say many of the law’s requirements will drive up the costs for their health-care plans and make unionized workers less competitive. Among other things, the law eliminates the caps on medical benefits and prescription drugs used as cost-containment measures in many health-care plans. It also allows children to stay on their parents’ plans until they turn 26.

To offset that, the nation’s largest labor groups want their lower-paid members to be able to get federal insurance subsidies while remaining on their plans. In the law, these subsidies were designed only for low-income workers without employer coverage as a way to help them buy private insurance.

In early talks, the Obama administration dismissed the idea of applying the subsidies to people in union-sponsored plans, according to officials from the trade group, the National Coordinating Committee for Multiemployer Plans, that represents these insurance plans. Contacted for this article, Obama administration officials said the issue is subject to regulations still being written.
