    One of the biggest exports that the US has is medical devices and technologies... I guess they didn't pay their lobbyists enough.

    "The medical device tax constitutes the largest cost increase DeRoyal has experienced in its 40-year history. We are working to mitigate this impact in a number of ways from both a revenue and cost perspective. Even in the face of this challenge we are doing everything within our power to preserve US jobs in this incredibly difficult economic environment."

    I have an industrial park with facilities and less "stringent" taxing policy waiting for Mr. Pittman in the Caymans. It is silly to produce in the U.S., pay Mr. Obama's Medical Device tax, and export elsewhere. There is always a way around the mountain.

    Now all of you Libtards be sure to fire up to this response. You must:

    1 Attack me at a personal level. That is always your best angle, though ineffective as I do not give a rat's ass what you idiots think.

    2. Lie about what you know nothing about.

    3. Stick your head further up Mr. Obama's asshole.
