A friend of mine at church (who works in cardiac rhythm management) noted that as far as he could tell, major medical device companies in the Twin Cities area were holding off on as many hiring decisions as possible until they knew what "Obamacare" held for them.
Put differently, before a bill was presented or a single vote was held, "Obamacare" was already delaying or killing job prospects for a lot of people. And yet it gets worse; those jobs were to develop things like cardiac stents, pacemakers, surgical tools, and the like. The very threat of Obamacare is likely to be injurious or lethal to thousands of people.
One wonders if those who would "reform" healthcare (generally by taking the profit out of it) ever stop to consider that, say, a lifelong smoker who resides at 1600 Pennsylvania might someday depend on this kind of innovation. Apparently not.
