Obamacare will hurt healthcare industry

Regarding “Healthcare industry leaders react to Obama's re-election”:

Great article on the comments from healthcare providers on the Obamacare program, now that Obama has been elected for a second term.

It would be good to also get some insight from the device manufacturers that will now be paying a 2% tax on all medical devices that are sold in this country. It would be interesting to see how that will affect jobs, long-term R&D in the medical field and the healthcare providers themselves. My personal opinion is that the Obamacare program will hurt the healthcare industry and lower the quality of healthcare overall.
