It will make no difference to the bottom line. All competing companies had to pay it and no one will skip having a new knee or important surgery over 3%. Only the poor folks it was to benefit will suffer now.
Mr Gordon; No honest person ever gets to be president.
Our system guarantees that all presidents lie to varying degrees. Obama lied less even if you count Bush statements made in willful ignorance.
Obama's actions bailed us out of the 2nd great depression that Bush led us into.
It's gone now and will make no difference, except some very poor folks will come up short when they are very sick. Happy now?
Wall street doesn't care about 2 years from now at all, agreed.
But if you can see what's probably going to happen in 2 years to 5 year ,and put your money there..You can come out a fat cat.
Will you only live till next quarter? That's how you are thinking.
I never remotely imagined, back in the '60s that i'd live to be 70 years old.
I was a poor junk sculptor then who had trouble making the rent.
If i'd invested just a couple of dollars a week that i literally #$%$ away on beer, i'd be wealthy now.
Short term , we are up against brilliant analysts with access to the best math guys with enormous computing power and access to info we will never see for months...Oh, and direct connection to the exchange computers. They fight for microsecond advantages. We can't compete in that arena.
This might be more of an answer than you deserve, but i tried.
The White House will not fight this if 11 Democratic Senators are willing to join with the 56 Republican and "Independent" Senators. A recalcitrant POTUS has vowed to veto the proposal and I believe him. Next year there will be a repeated attempt at the end of the Presidents term and then the Democratic Senators up for reelection will think twice whether they want to stand along side him or stand as an "independent" thinker. I give the tax a (20%+30%) 50% chance of being repealed before 2017.
That will have no significant impact except poor folks will have a harder time when they are sick.
Are you proud of that?
Millennium Healthcare (MHCC) just reported $6.3 million, a 1,200%+ increase in quarter revenues in its recent 10Q filing.
Because Millennium’s diagnostics are preventive, FDA approved, reimbursable and cost patients little to nothing, and because they add significant income for physicians, sales are beginning to increase exponentially. Projected growth is remarkable.
And Millennium’s gross margins are exceptionally high as the equipment and associated costs can pay for themselves in the first 30 days of installation.
Millennium’s network of 1,300 physician offices is growing dramatically and sales and earnings are in the early part of a steep growth curve. There are over 30,000 primary care offices and most of them are going to want MHCC exclusive diagnostics.
$6.3 million was achieved with only a small number of Millennium’s the current 1,300 physician offices.
Millennium has the potential to sign a large number of the 30,000 plus offices.
At 30-50 cents Millennium shares are a ground floor opportunity.
Shares are oversold and exceptionally cheap because the company has paid millions in fees (reported in 10Q) to consultants with shares of stock that they have been selling heavily to convert to cash. This heavy selling has depressed shares prices to a very attractive entry point.
Invest a few minutes of your time to read the 10Q for yourself and confirm an exceptional buying opportunity.
Recommend taking advantage of current tax selling low price and putting into your portfolio now.

Americans don't like to be lied to. They are sometimes apathetic because of the blessings we are experiencing, but as once stated by an Admiral of the Japanese Empire...."I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant."
Once awaken, they will act...and we did.
As to the blessings listed in the above Canadian paper...there are causal reasons for each of them. The mistake some make is to associate the results in a particular time without understanding the causations that brought about the results.
This is part of what a Canadian wrote to one of our papers: Consider, right now in America, corporate profits are at record highs, the country's adding 200,000 jobs per month, unemployment is below 6%, U.S. gross national product growth is the best of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries.
The dollar is at its strongest levels in years, the stock market is near record highs, gasoline prices are falling, there's no inflation, interest rates are the lowest in 30 years, U.S. oil imports are declining, U.S. oil production is rapidly increasing, the deficit is rapidly declining, and the wealthy are still making astonishing amounts of money.
America is leading the world once again and respected internationally — in sharp contrast to the Bush years. Obama brought soldiers home from Iraq and killed Osama bin Laden.
So, Americans vote for the party that got you into the mess that Obama just dug you out of? This defies reason.
Very well articulated. You definitely dispelled any issues I had with the "technology grants" headline. The thoughts about Gen X and Millenial age surgeons being more at ease with robotic surgery really does make one think VERY long term about this company. Thanks.

I have no opinion on the business viability or hazards of the pipeline. This is not the forum for such a discussion anyway. I do have an opinion on the medical device tax however. It has proven to be a loser, expensive to administer, and does more harm than good. I'll be happy to see it go, and send the 2.3% back into revenues.
In contrast to the GW Bush stupid disasters:
Obama, flawed and sold out as he is,
looks awfully damn good!!!!
The market has recovered, unemployment is back down.
Stop sniveling on a stock board.
With the price of oil, keystone is unprofitable...Stupid oil industry bought republicans still pushing an ecological disaster. Bottom, do you ever actually read unbiased reporting?
The med device tax is insignificant as market forces go and applies to all the competition.
Just more right wing whining..
This is the wrong board for this discussion. You offend, we oppose.
