    Reddit's in a tizzy over this. People don't realize that when you impose extra costs on employers they will pass those costs on, either raising prices or cutting workers and pay. It's not hard to figure out. If you really want Papa John's employees to have health insurance, don't create a system that so strongly encourages employers to control healthcare. All the system is good for is driving up costs and creating these stupid news controversies. I don't really care that much, though. Never been a fan of Papa John's.

    We've been saying it on boards like these for years, but some folks just can't put two and two together. They want everyone everywhere to be paid more and for everything everywhere to cost less, and think government will accomplish that for us.

    Jet,
    I noticed you didn't come close to touching one question. Didn't even get within the same continent. Why is that?
    Is it because there is no defense? Just as Obama could not defend his failed economic record?

    Go through my posts... I'll throw out a one liner... but go through my posts.

    Your views are based on a fictional universe that exists only within your own mind, you don't live in reality you live in a partisan fantasy universe where the Dunning-Kruger Effect is in full swing with you.
    I noticed you answered my questions from the last post... more ZERO calorie beer.

    Really?
    Politically you are utterly incompetent.
    ROTFLOL... Jet... as a young man I made a point to learn about politics. My parents never told me who they voted for... they figured I'd be a responsible citizen and figure it out for myself. What a gift. I was indoctrinated by Socialist propaganda, but learned my way out of it.

    I may seem incompetent to you because you are a member of Parasite Nation, and I despise it. I understand. But deep down you know you are lying to yourself. And that... is the worst person to lie to. Might make a nice public show with other members of Parasite Nation... but it's just more ZERO calorie beer.

    For years I have read your tripe on this forum that has almost 9/10 been devoid of any factual relevancy related to our living universe.
    For years I have posted fact to debunk Socialism, that Bush lied on Iraq, and defending America from Parasite Nation. I know I'm not popular with Parasite nation, but this isn't about being popular with people who are wrong headed.

    My aim to to defeat you, to shame you, to expose you for what you support... which is decay, dependence, and a desolate existence. I prefer Liberty... personal responsibility, charity... FREEDOM.

    He was able to offer a million free pizzas because it was a promotional tax write off. Just like most companies get a tax write off for airing commercials.

    You specifically? No...I dont blame you for whats wrong with America. I blame anyone that thinks they are entitled to free **** and expect others to pay for it.

    But...as I said...the beautiful thing about this country is that anyone can go out and create their own business and provide all the free **** they want to...provided they dont create another 16 trillion in debt for those 'free' services and pass them on to future generations.

    Problem is the republican party has lost its way... and it appears to me that they would rather tank the economy and blame Obama than go to work. Every Tom, Dick and Dodo is making excuses for his business decisions...

    Except Christie and he pulled off a hell of a deal with panasonic in Newark.

    No Papa John's is a political sham of a statement. He has already said 14 cents and now after the LOSS of Willard he doubles down on the mean petty spirit by reducing hours. Adding 14 cents per pie vs hurting his employees across the board.

    he is an example of how bitchy some millionaires can be. he is to the policies of the current President as Joe the Plumber was in the first election. Speaking of Joe, what happened to him?

    Only a few on the radical right he guys like this pizza man as beleaguered or downtrodden.

    The House sent 20 bills to the senate... none were taken up.

    Obama had both chambers for 2-years... what did it reap? No budgets and spending like Michael Jackson in a toy store.

    I don't know this story; tell me what did he do to get Panasonic to NJ. I'll guess... You'll have to copy and paste for the answer... it's invisible.

    Tax breaks... and other breaks...

    I assumed people knew what I meant when I said that. Paying the cost of it and paying company's rather than straight out of pocket is what I meant.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
