    medical device tax

    Laying off thousands of employees is certainly not the solution. A balanced approach is the method a smart CEO would use. Some cost reduction (perhaps less corporate perks and reducing energy consumption) and some price increase to their customers. I think an additional 2.5% tax on medical devices is a tempest in a tea pot and just another excuse for CEO's to complain about government while accepting every government perk and contract that comes their way.
