    Both of which are a small fraction of what it would cost to provide health care to all the workers, and the former of the two was intended to increase revenue.

    Heya.

    So that guy is a jackass... the papa john guy. He offered millions of dollars to defeat Obama and then he said he can't afford to pay healthcare for his employees... yeah, right.

    Well... screw him. If he wouldn't have just given away millions of dollars, I would have bought that rhetoric.

    I am not saying Obamacare is good. Obamacare is a very, very stupid way of giving people healthcare. It is retarded. It is NOT universal healthcare like there is in most European countries... it is not even close. it is just another way for the insurance companies to make a ton more money and destroy those who don't encourage the enrichment of the insurance companies. Which is not what universal healthcare does...

    Anyway. This argument of this guy from Papa John is just retarded.

    I love it when Parasite Nation gets riled up and rears its ugly head.

    It is his money, and that money is a drop in the bucket compared to what ObamaKare will cost. I guess it's verboten to fight Parasite Nation and the Parasite in Chief.

    "You didn't build that."

    Reality will set in... and I don't want to hear complaints about businesses closing, increased prices and lost jobs from Parasite Nation.

    60 Trillion in unfunded liabilities.
    16 Trillion of debt.
    All due to Parasite Nation and their Socialist Legislation.

    We can fight over tax rates... but there is no denying the mountain of debt created by Parasite Nation.

    Good try... try again.

    PS... High tax rates were due to war... then kept in place with oodles of loopholes... why not go back before that?
    Because it shows what a Parasite Nation we've become... and how the proponents of Parasite Nation have bought into using the tax code to divide and conquer. To create envy. To create a Parasite Nation.

    I love it when partisan pollies just go ahead and criticize at random without any case.

    Nobody says that it isn't his money, but his claim that obamacare will be the cause for him, as the owner of Papa John or whatever, to decrease hours (wages/personnel/etc) at his business is BS and it is unsubstantiated. That being said, i do not agree with obamacare as I have eloquently explained in the post you so willingly cut in half just to get into a polemic you cannot possibly win. But I do not agree or support retarded people who are looking for any excuse to plead sympathy from the people at the expense of his employees.

    At random?
    Businesses are cutting jobs; The Parasite Nation recovery.

    Nobody said it wasn't his money, but members of Parasite Nation complained he spent his money as he saw fit.

    You fail to understand how business operates. You see, they are in business to profit, because profit means security. If there is legislation that screws with their profit making capacity they will act. Raise prices, cut where they can or both. People will also act, for higher prices reduces activity... even buying a pizza. That is why restaurants run into trouble when the economy goes for a loop. It is an expense they can cut buy eating at home far cheaper... and who does that hurt? All those in the service industry.

    Parasite Nation does not operate in a vacuum..

    They will do do as the economic illiterate, political hack, and Chief if Parasite Nation... Obama suggested; namely business should take loans to pay staff... or "now is not the time for profits". Business may have to to comply with the retarded schemes of Parasite nation, but they do not have act in a manner hostile to their interests... and they won't.

    granted. That has some truth to it. However, a businessman would consider the PR part of it. People voted for Obama and voted for Obamacare. This clowns "threats" are only doing his PR image bad. He will drive away customers. Already on multiple sites there is a sh*tstorm brewing against Papa John, including reddit, threatening to boycott him.

    Suckers.
    Gads, I thought for a minute you were The Professor.

    It used to be that a "full-time employee" was someone who worked 20 hours a week, in order to avoid companies instituting pension plans for themselves and being able to exempt their employees. (If you paid holidays or vacation days, those hours were included.) Somewhere along the line, that hourly number was changed to 30. (Must have been Republicans who did that. Ha!)

    That number will have to go back to 30 hours a week or most smallish businesses will cut staff hours back to avoid Obamacare. Can't say as I blame them. Obamacare's going to need much tweaking. Whenever we find out exactly what's in it.
