    I'm sure it will have a bigger effect than gas prices have had.

    No, it does not sound like fun. It's a good thing that Obamacare won't effect companies that already offer health insurance.

    This decision deserves a thread of its own. Will you start one?

    Either way, thanks again. That was most kind of you.

    It has been beaten to death shortly after the ruling came out, remants of the discussion may remain under the constitution forum.

    If companies decide to pay for HC bennies, then they will, as history shows, pass those costs on to us, the consumers. If they take the "fine" they will pass those costs on to us, the consumers.

    However you shake Obamacare out, we will have to pay for the costs of those that don't have insurance. Tax hike is my best guess. You've heard the old saying - "nothing in life is free", yes?

    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...

    It should prolly be noted that Schnatter said "will have to offer health care coverage to more of its 16,500 total employees or pay a penalty to the government."

    In otherwords he is not talking about total people that will be added to insurance as being 16,500...but part of. That could mean as little as 1 person or as much as 16,499 employee's, or somewhere in between. So yeah prices will rise...more than likely across the whole spectrum and not just in the pizzaria buisness.

    The article also mentions another side effect of Obamacare....that of more people getting laid off....at a time when our unemployment is higher than ...should I say...what WAS the norm.

    From article:
    One Papa John's franchise owner in Texas, Judy Nichols, says the law could interfere with her ability to open more restaurants.

    “I have two options, I can stop offering coverage and pay the $2,000 fine, or I could keep my number of staff under 50 so the mandate doesn't apply,” she told Legal Newsline. Nichols added that the law may cost her between $20,000 to $30,000 extra in taxes. “Obamacare is making me think about cutting jobs instead," she said.
    IMO Obamacare is going to widen the divide that already exists between small buisness and big buisness.

    Edit to add: And if people will be laid off that just means that you'll be paying for their welfare...which could cost just as much money as what we are paying now. Possibly more depending on how things go. And yeah...maybe even less. But overall with the lay offs and price increases I would bet that it would be the same as or more than what we are paying now.

    If I had bought a laptop instead of a desktop, I could have used the net when it was 105 degrees here in Cleveland. Jeeez louise, take month or two off and you miss so much.
