You won’t see the lefties getting all worked up over fast food places dumping workers because of the ObamaCare tax hike paying much attention to this. But one of ObamaCare’s uglier little knives was a tax on medical equipment manufacturers. And now that tax is hitting home for one of Obama’s biggest donors.
Forget Papa John’s. Meet Jon Styker.
Jon Stryker is heir to the Stryker Corporation, one of the largest medical device and equipment manufacturers in the world. Stryker’s grandfather was the surgeon who invented the mobile hospital bed. The company now sells $8.3 billion worth of hospital beds, artificial joints, medical cameras, and medical software every year.
Stryker, a member of the Forbes 400 list, was one of the top five donors to the Obama campaign. Having donated $2 million to the Priorities USA Action super PAC, Stryker also gave $66,000 in contributions to Obama and the Democrat Party.
