MANUFACTURING



Stryker, the Kalamazoo-based maker of artificial hips and knees, will cut 5% of its global workforce by the end of next year to reduce costs in the face of new fees on device makers required by the U.S. health care law.



The job cuts will reduce annual pretax operating costs by more than $100 million beginning in 2013, when the medical-device excise tax is scheduled to take effect, Stryker said Thursday in a statement. Stryker had more than 20,000 employees as of Dec. 31, according to Bloomberg News data.



Stryker expects to record $85 million to $95 million of the expense in the fourth quarter of 2011.

John, I don't think the pipeline is dead. I think he just punted til after the election because lets face it, he's not in the White House to govern, but rather to campaign.

It really is all he knows how to do, so I guess why not maximize his strengths.
