    Has anyone considered that instead of raising the price of the pizza they may just put 1/2 an ounce less of cheese on each pizza?

If they don't, then they'll go to his competitors, Pizza Hut and Domino's and then Papa John's will lose money...a lot of money. That's just the way it is.
    Try this. He was making a point about the cost of ACA not about the pricing policy of his company. Perhaps he was trying to make the point that there is no free lunch, that when you add cost, someone pays. It could be that the company will absorb the cost and shareholders will pay, along with the government which will collect less tax revenues. It could be he will recoup these costs by cutting back on other employee benefits, or he could raise prices. In all likelihood a combination of all three.

    Not sure why folks on this site seem so literal about what someone says.

    Not even sure why folks on this site seem to think they're going to raise the price of their pizzas. He never said that.

    Frozen pizza has very little cheese, they use a vegetable oil based fake cheesy substance as filler, with a few random gratings for cheese taste.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Never eat anything that's served in a bucket.

    Course right now 'we' are paying for the uninsured to get healthcare in the most expensive place- the ER- where critical care patients can have a harder struggle to receive timely care, doctors distracted by the sea of uninsured trying to get help for their children.

    The hospital and the doctors are not eating the 'loss' from uninsured coming into the ER and not paying the bill.

    Guess who is?

    Now some want to set up a system where healthcare for non-emergency patients is billed at something less than trauma care rates, at say, clinic rates. Imagine the price difference between a visit to the ER for a strep throat vs the cost at the AM/PM clinic. My last visit to the 'quick care' clinic was 65 bucks plus medicine, Imagine what that would have cost the hospital if I had clogged up the ER? 65 bucks vs 300+

    Right now those whining about the increase cost of a healthcare plan for currently uninsured, seem ignorant of how their medical bills are being paid. When a hospital charges 5 bucks for an aspirin they claim it is to cover the costs of those who are uninsured and don't pay their bills.

    Just something to think about while you decry 14 cents extra for a pizza...
