    Surely you jest? The pizza delivery business has successfully weathered changes in minimum wage and wide fluctuations in the price of gasoline and continues to flourish. Do you really think this industry would be "wiped out" by a cost component that is less than 2% of its total cost (and that is just taking some hypothetical view of what the cost is, as I am sure their CEO, like many others, are overstating the impact for effect AND not considering any benefit).

    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.

    Real poor people (not middle-upper class America's vision of what it is to be poor) will do what they have to do to survive. Ive seen poor folks cut a hole in the floor and drop a 5 gallon bucket down in the hole to use that as their toilet because they had no running water. Bucket gets full? pull it out and go steal another bucket from a work site somewhere....
    Did they sell the buckets to Papa John's?

    Please tell me I'm not the only person to notice the incredible irony of a PIZZA company losing on its bottom line because of health reasons.

    Really? It's no big deal that some Americans repeatedly indulge in pizzas that have over 100 calories per slice and are thus adding to everyone's premiums, yet it's liberal socialist tyranny that the price of an entire pizza may have just gone up by a whopping fifteen cents? Really, conservatives, really? And you wonder why we don't listen to you?

    Are you lucky, or are you Good? But, I see that those that need healthcare services are the bad ones. Like the Tea Party family we met at a demonstration. If he wan't bad he woldn't have been assigned to dispose of agent orange, right? But it did take a while for him to get really sick, and health care wouldn't have made him instantly much healthier. His fault though right?

    Only if you're healthy enough. But you'd just say we don't need people that can't "Left foot.... Right foot....." I can understand the POV.

    How many people in the US are going to come across agent orange? Not that it matters since being as he was assigned to dispose of it then that was his job, and being as disposing of such things is the governments job then that means he was a government employee. Which means he is not only getting paid his wage by you but you are also paying for his life long healthcare. Regardless if he's poor or rich.

    Bad bad analogy.

    There was a rather large number of them. But I guess your saying that agent orange was a unique case and nothing like that has ever happend.

    No one is paying his bill directly. You are paying indirectly the high cost of ER care because of lack of lower cost and more benificial care he should have recieved. He has and had no insurance.
