    It should be noted that the people did NOT vote for Obamacare. The majority of people did not want the mandate. Obamacare was voted on by crooked politicians in the middle of the night, much like thieves in the night.

    $500 per unsolicited text message is the relevant part. Some were bombarded with several per day. How come a foreigner knows this, while you live there and don't, smart guy?

    Obamacare is an operating cost. It is an expense that will never go away, and produce nothing for the business.

    What you are doing here is business illiteracy; the failure to recognize the difference between the two.

    What the heck were the American voters thinking this past election?

    Romney and many GOP Senate candidates said they would follow the will of the people and repeal ObamaCare, but for some crazy reason some American voters did not give them the support they needed to get elected.

    Technically both insurance and advertising costs are an expense.

    The point being that pizza give aways are designed to generate net revenue; they aren't simply because Papa John's woke up and realized they had too much money. However, yes, both cost money

    Technically the give away, or advertising, hope to increase gross sales by drawing in more future customers. Sorry.

    Your other observations are spot on.
