DENNY'S to charge 5% 'Obamacare surcharge' and cut employee hours...
#1
We need a John Galt sticky.

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.'

I am curious to know what people thought was going to happen. Did they really think that all this free healthcare was actually free? Shrug

And now people are angry...outraged to hear that businesses will be passing on the cost to consumers and employees and cutting hours for some employees. Those companies are surely greedy, racist, pigs Dodgy

I'm sure the Justice Department is already hot on the case of filing a lawsuit against them for doing this. After all it's racist.

Heh...just wait 10 years until Obamacare is dictating the salaries of medical workers in order to keep costs down.

Let me throw some more fuel into it: The reason why nurses (and nursing homes) are in such high demand NOW is because of the HUGE population of baby boomers getting old. The generations following the boomers are significantly smaller, and will not require anywhere near the nurses and homes that the boomers require now, so I would expect massive layoffs in the medical field just when you're getting close to thinking about retiring, if you're in your 20s.

I think every business should be doing exactly this. Have you looked at your phone bill lately? Landline or wireless? All of the tacked-on .gov surcharges, fees, and taxes are listed separately so all can see what the service provider takes in as opposed to what the .gov gets, and what the .gov gets is considerable.

This is no different, and the public needs to know how this works.
