    Because the gov't has no control over the price of oil, but they do control the price of pizza (and every other good and service) by mandating health care. If that doesn't piss you off, go live in Europe.

    Lol, the government doesn't control the price of pizza.

    Every single thing you purchase will cost more not just pizza. How many things do you buy every day? How many separate items in your grocery cart? So if you spend 5 or 10 bucks a day extra to pay for obama care whats that add up to a year? This is a new tax that will help keep the economy in the crapper.

    Under Obamacare, the company, which is the third-largest pizza takeout and delivery chain in the United States, will have to offer health care coverage to more of its 16,500 total employees or pay a penalty to the government.


    OMG...a 15 to 20 cent increase on a 14.00 pizza to give 16,500 employees a chance at having health care...

    Anyone that doesnt believe thats a value is NUTS...because if they dont have insurance we will pay far more for their trip to the emergency room...

    The story does not say that the chain will offer health care. It says that it will either do this or pay the fine. The fine is less so that will probably be the choice.

    We will pay more for a pizza ZND the uninsured will still use the E-Room.

    I think it's hysterical when some company makes a statement that absurd. You mean their price is oh so low now that they would never have raised it to add profit? Only because they'll be providing health care? Just plain silly.

    I've been self-employed for 44 years and I never raised my prices because of taxes or anything like that. I raised them to make more money and I saw that the market would bear it.

    With pizza going up 15 I'm sure we'll all quit eating it.

    You have got to love folks who are making good money in the industry whine about having to treat their workers like real people!

    14 cents per pizza isn't going to drive down demand for pizza. Or for burgers, shakes and fries.

    Pretty punk-ass for so smiling a guy.


    I order a bunch of pizza. I delivered pizzas when much younger and always overtip. My daughter manages a restaurant so there's that, too.

    The folks who work at most pizza joints that i'm familiar with are pretty young. Students and very young adults. Not the group that opts to get insurance.

    For the legal eagles out there: does Obmamcare mandate the minimum 50 to cover all employees or only full timers? This might have the effect that nobody has a full time job anymore.
