    I bet HE personally wont take a hit. He'll cut as many employees as he can before he takes a cut personally. Most would do the same. It's the human way.

    I figured whining about it makes him seem like a cry baby.

    Since when do corporations complain about costs going up to the public? Should I expect to read the Walmart CEO bitching about the price of gas to fuel their trucks? Costco going to demand I take interest in skyrocketing prices for uniform production?

    Oh for fuck's sake, the guy is just being honest. Nobody is going to take that kind of hit. He'd have to be charging more than a fuckin' pizza is worth to cover all that health insurance. Meanwhile back at the ranch, since everybody else's healthcare policies are more, as well as their electricity, and their gasoline, and their food, and every other goddam thing they need... they have less discretionary funds in their budgets to buy 30-dollar pizzas.

    You people just don't get it. Run, don't walk, to your nearest community college and take a beginning course in economics. Of course, THAT's gonna cost you more as well, so.... enjoy the Obama economy. :rolleyes:

    Sending people to the emergency room is such a money saver. Let them die saves even more.

    According to him, that's an additional 10 cents per pizza.

    But since it's Papa John's, that might actually be more than the pizza is worth. Touche.

    Of course he's being honest.

    His costs will go up, and his business will find a way to offset them, like most businesses they will start with employees.

    All business do this when costs increase, they just don't normally make a big production about it.

    Obamacare seems to be bad based on the reaction of these businesses.
