    Having said that, the guy is clearing using this to make a political point, but I think he's making himself look foolish by doing so. If Obamacare caused prices to increase by $3 he'd have a legitimate point, but 25c isn't enough to get all worked up about.

    Plus, if he's passing it on, is it really costing him anything?

    Plus, if he's paying it, so are his competitors, so where is he losing any market competitive advantage?
    Where did this 25 cent figure come from? I don't think Schnatter even makes that claim. I believe he said it would raise the cost of a pie 10-15 cents, and others have said it would probably be closer to a nickel.

    Schnatter is giving away 2 million pizzas this year for an NFL promotion. That's going to cost the company roughly five times the annual cost of ACA.

    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    You lost right there with your own posts.

    But in the effort to teach and instruct you as to your error I went much further in building a solid case against your limited efforts.


    It was then met and surpassed by other definitions.

    It was then surpassed by video of prominent Republicans using and explaining the term.

    It was then surpassed by prize winning economists explaining the terms and issue here.

    And all you have is a never ending loop of the same thirty seconds of self justification and attack.
    Still dancing and trying to cover for your dishonesty I see. What a shame
    The information provided showed you to be wrong.
    You said that it didn't mean Venture Capitalist when it clearly does. You were wrong!
    And clearly you knew that and said it anyways.

    You, and only you, were the one who was wrong.
    And as you are apparently confused again as is typical, I never made the claim that it did not mean additional things.
    So no, you are wrong again, and now are misrepresenting the position I took.

    All in an attempt to cover for your dishonesty.
    So typical of partisan hackery.

    I get it, if I were in his position I'd raise prices, cut hours, release employees, and let everyone know at every phase exactly why. I wouldn't complain to the company about the increase but rather the root cause, and that is the idiots who signed that POS bill into law, the idiot "conservative" SCOTUS justice who interpreted the tax powers incorrectly to uphold the POS, and the people who voted again for the idiot who signed the bill into law. I don't scream at symptoms.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    iLOL
    Your post, to which I replied, came after that.
    That's like hypocrisy isn't it? lol


    In addition; And?
    Correcting the information that you provided in this topic, is within the framework of staying on topic, and is not an attack.
    That should be sufficient, just as this post pointing out to you that I was within the framework of staying on topic should qualify.
    But if it doesn't, let me add that what the Denny's owner is doing is his prerogative and isn't wrong at all.

    Someone earlier in the thread said they'd give a quarter to give employees top of the line insurance, which just stuck. Whatever the cost, they should just increase the pizza cost and be done with it.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Attacking me personally for the content of a post which came after a warning still is very much a violation of the warning itself. Again -
