More layoffs to Americans and more jobs to China is one of the many negative outcomes of Obamacare.

We now see yet another US corporation laying off people as a result of Obama's --- yes, and McNERNEY'S deliberate destruction of the US economy.

Boston Scientific, with offices in Silicon Valley, including employees who live in Pleasanton, is laying off 1400.

I think Boston Scientific is doing a good job of sinking their own boat.

CEO Ray Elliot made the list for most disgusting and absurd CEO perks. 30 million wasn't enough as an annual salary so the board of directors chipped in 1.3 million as a relocation allowance.

This guy is bailing out after only two years. News of his departure sent the stock skidding by more 10%. Investors are waiting for the other shoe to drop.

It's the fault of the black guy in the oval office. CEOs should always be paid 30 mil annually.
