    Via Daily Mail:
    President Obama’s election victory ensured his Affordable Care Act would remain the centerpiece of his first term in power – but that has left some business owners baulking at the extra cost Obamcare will bring.


    Florida based restaurant boss John Metz, who runs approximately 40 Denny’s and owns the Hurricane Grill & Wings franchise has decided to offset that by adding a five percent surcharge to customers’ bills and will reduce his employees’ hours.


    With Obamacare due to be fully implemented in January 2014, Metz has justified his move by claiming it is ‘the only alternative. I’ve got to pass on the cost to the customer.’
    The fast-food business owner is set to hold meetings at his restaurants in December where he will tell employees, ‘that because of Obamacare, we are going to be cutting front-of-the-house employees to under 30 hours, effective immediately.’

    -------------

    And it begins. I'm sure this will be only the first of a long line of companies passing the cost on to the customers. Inflation will be obscene to say the least. Not to mention the pain as more and more companies cut worker hours to avoid the law.

    The unintended consequences of good intentions.

    This was intended all along, the plan is to push everyone to Government healthcare.

    I'll be waiting for the boycott demands from the Left. I'll be more eagerly awaiting the boycott demands on Stryker Medical Equipment. Somehow, I suspect that's never coming.
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

    I haven't been to a Denny's in years. There was a boycott in the 90s, by black people, because of some racial incidents at some of their restaurants. Most of them around metro Detroit have closed, probably due to that boycott. There are still Denny's restaurants in the exurbs, Grand Rapids, and along I-94 west.

    I prefer Big Boy's all you can eat breakfast buffet, personally.

    He should have had a health care plan for his employees in the first place, and his prices would include that.

    What kind of a person would cheer on this man? What kind of a person thinks it's really neat that he can pay 25 cents less for his lunch at the expense of the people who serve him?

    It's becoming increasingly clear what the health care debate is about: petty people who don't give a shit if other people have health care as long as they have theirs.

    This country isn't saving a nickel by shopping at Walmart. Between food stamps, section 8, and Medicaid their employees are amongst the largest collectors of welfare benefits.

    Wal-Mart's poverty wages force employees to rely on $2.66 billion in government help every year, or about $420,000 per store. In state after state, Wal-Mart employees are the top recipients of Medicaid. As many as 80 percent of workers in Wal-Mart stores use food stamps.

    What about me? I don't have health insurance, and I don't give a shit if other people have it either.
    I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad

    Now you and i will be forced to either buy a plan or pay a fine, I have money for neither it is pay for healthcare insurance, pay their fine or pay my bills, I have to pay my bills.

    I was doing fine paying doctor visits out of pocket and making payments on emergency room bills. They will make me a criminal yet for minding my own business and paying my own bills and there is absolutely nothing I can do about it, they have painted me into a corner.
