    Lets assume we are talking about a $12 pizza.
    Two Bucks is approximately a 16% increase in product cost to the consumer.

    Now add 16% to ALL of your product purchases as well as all of your service fees (haircut, dry cleaner, etc, etc).

    Does that sound like fun yet?

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    What a silly argument. Papa John's is not one individual's property -- every franchise is its own small business. The national corporation has an obligation to maximize the profitability of these businesses, and in a recession I have no doubt they are struggling since, as fast food goes, pizza is fairly expensive.

    Your post adds to the myth that all liberals think profit is inherently evil, liblady, and this does your cause a huge disservice.

    IMO, this will be the first of many price hikes on goods and services we will all have to pay to foot the bill for Obamacare.

    If 14 cents keeps thousands of people from using the insanely expensive ER room as their primary physician it is some footing worth doing...

    Do you know what the price of a $10 pizza was in the mid 90's?

    Hint: It's the same as it is now, just made with cheaper ingredients.

    That didn't answer the question.

    Does a 16% increase in all your living costs sound like fun yet?
