    Screw over people that work for a living and 'we the people', most of whom work for a living, will take our wallets and walk away from employee abusive businesses.
    Republicans driving business away from their businesses doesn't sound good for business -- WTF are they thinking?


    Papa John's Obamacare Stance Costs Company Its Reputation: Study




    Restaurant brands suffering after anti-Obamacare rants.

    We've seen a number of intemperate anti-Obamacare rants from people in the restaurant industry, and there's at least a little evidence from the YouGov Brand Index survey that some of the more high-profile opponents are suffering for it.


    This is why, conventionally, business leaders exercise their political clout through behind-the-scenes activity or cloaked in the guise of trade associations. People aren't going to stop eating out if the National Restaurant Association gets involved in a high-profile political controversy, but Papa John's hurts itself by becoming the face of opposition to a signature Obama administration initiative.

    Darden backs down - latimes.com

    Darden Restaurants Inc., the parent of eateries such as Olive Garden and Red Lobster, said it will not bump any of its full-time employees down to part-time status to save on healthcare costs once President Obama’s reforms go into effect.


    Come 2014, when the healthcare law is set to go into effect, Darden said its 45,000 full-time workers will keep their status. All full-timers, whether hourly or salaried, will have access to the same insurance coverage, the company said.

    What did they expect? They cut their employees hours & that pissed off the employees & customers. The employees make the money for the business. They bring in customers, serve them & make them happy. An unhappy employee can't make customers happy.

    These stupid owners created a big pile of fail & fell right in it. :lol:

    Many righties are in denial, but pull yourself together Steph, Obama won-----Obama won because a center-left America finds Democratic party policies superior to Republican party policies and-----and it seems with every new poll Americans are seeing the benefits of keeping Obamacare and Medicare. Let me remind you, Romney said he would repeal Obamacare (that was a lie) on day one, and what happened --- Romney lost in an electoral landslide.

    OPPOSED not oppose? - giggle!
    "ObamaCare, a bill the MAJORITY of the people OPPOSED"? get real -pewsh!-





    Poll: Fewer Support Obamacare Repeal - ABC News

    By Z. Byron Wolf
    Nov 13, 2012


    A record low number of American voters want to see the Affordable Care Act – Obamacare – repealed, according to a new post-election poll conducted by the Kaiser Family Foundation.

    Obamacare was not the top issue driving American to vote, although nearly seven in 10 Americans cited it as a “major factor” in their decision choosing between the candidates, according to Kaiser. Voters who listed Obamacare as a major factor were evenly split between Republican Mitt Romney, 47 percent, and President Obama, 46 percent.

    <snip>

    But only 33 percent of Americans now want to see the law repealed. Romney had pledged to repeal the law and replace it with new policy. 43 percent of Americans view the law favorably and 39 percent view it unfavorably, according to the poll.

    Seven in 10 Americans also cited the future of Medicare as a “major factor” in their vote. Obama led among this group, 50 percent – 41 percent.

    National exit polls conducted on election day found 26 percent of voters wanted the law expanded, 18 percent want it left as-is, 27 percent wanted to repeal some of the law and 25 percent wanted to repeal all of it.
