    Denny's to charge 5% 'Obamacare surcharge' and cut employee hours...[W:287/521]

    Denny's to charge 5% 'Obamacare surcharge' and cut employee hours to deal with cost of legislation

    Florida based restaurant boss John Metz, who runs approximately 40 Denny's and owns the Hurricane Grill & Wings franchise has decided to offset that by adding a five percent surcharge to customers' bills and will reduce his employees' hours.

    There is nothing on Denny's website about this, and the only link I could find led back to the article cited in the OP.

    It's not "Dennys" but a guy that owns 40 Denny's franchises.

    It's sad that the government providing health-care to everyone is the bad guy, and not the guy putting the extra cost onto the people, and the workers.

    Though this is an argument for a single payer system as well though.

    Money doesn't grow on trees, therefore someone, eventually, will have to pay for it. When you tax businesses, that is passed onto the consumer. This guy is just putting it on your receipt, instead of bumping the price on the pancakes. It happens with other businesses too.

    As if the business man is just supposed to absorb the increased cost of running his business. Forcing businesses to do something costs money and as such they will offset that cost. Shocking! Its funny though that you think the party forcing people to provide something to others is the good guy though.

    And you can just pay for your single payer crap on your little own.

    Nothing is ever free. Anybody who thought that is dumb.

    Interestingly, it's one franchisee. I wonder if anybody will notice that other locations are cheaper?

    The government isn't providing anything--remember Obamacare supposedly saves the government money--the only way that happens is if the private market is providing everyone healthcare i.e. employers and people who have healthcare already whose premiums will be going up. Dems can't have it both ways ....

    What! This is why we need single payer completely socialized medicine? Say it's not so, who'd have thought, I'd never would have imagined that's what obamafarce is suppose to lead us too.

    This post really should enlighten people about the left. Suggesting the govt is good and the evil business is bad. And that some how the cost of health care for those the industry has already said we can't afford to cover should just be free. I hope you, the poster, are also going to tell doctors and nurses they should make less too?
