    But don't think when they get a tax break that it trickles down to us either, it just lines their pockets.

    You're right in one regard.... People will stop going to places like this; though it's because of the COST rather than the politics. Of course in another year when all of these places start doing it to ensure their profit margin remains in tact, you're likely to see a major decline for the entire industries related to entertaimnent, eating out, etc....

    Great lets drive them out of business. Who needs those jobs, tips, and services anyway. So long as we make em give us free insurance who needs shelter, food, etc?

    Let's also not forget that the main provisions of ACA don't even go into effect until 2014, so there is no rational justification for this.
    Which means he is just another disgruntled rich Republican SOB who is mad his taxes are going up.
    Move along, nothing to see here.

    And, he's cutting back employees to 30 hours so he doesn't have to provide health insurance to them. I'm not sure why he'd have to charge customers an extra 5% as well, since he's getting out of providing health insurance. Maybe he has to make a boat payment or something.

    I guess his employees will still have to go to the emergency room and stick the paying customers with the bill, just as they did before Obomneycare became law. What a great system we have.
    He's having a hissy fit and yes, the effect will be just that, the ER for his employees.

    Just to listen to what you are saying...

    1. Their money is your money... the government should thieve it for you.

    2. You seem to believe government taking is the solution... why? They take this money... turn $1.00 into 25 cents after the government meat grinder is done with it... and then buy votes with it. Don't you think it would be better in the pockets of those who made it... so they can invest and create jobs?

    3. You actually admit to trickle down working... except you think the government should trickle it down... but government's job isn't to be in business. It is 10,000 times better for this money to be creating more money... and jobs, and increases in wages that come with job growth... and with it tax revenue.

    4. Who cares if it lines their pockets... they created it, they bought it... they risked it... they earned it.

    I'm sorry, I misspoke, I should have said universal healthcare. Get employers out of the position of paying for and managing the healthcare of their employees.
