    Yep, I know that if I could have a Papa John's pizza for $14.20 or a pizza hut pizza for $14.00 I'll always go to pizza hut from now on

    Gimme a break, all they are saying is they are passing a possible 20 cent increase on to the customer. If you are debating whether or not to have pizza because of 20 cents you shouldn't be having order out pizza then.

    Last I recall Obama said health care cost would go down, that never happened. Worse yet, he never told us that everything else would go up.

    Yep, you better hold off getting that pizza then for 20 cents more. I mean, OMG, having to get ORDER OUT pizza for 20 cents more. What's next? The dollar menu at McDonalds goes up to $1.10. It's Armageddon I tell you, the END OF THE WORLD. AHHHHHHHHHHHH

    All of this because of POSSIBLE increases, not definite ones.

    Hey...heres an idea. Start providing health insurance for yourself and your family before you buy your video games, cell phones computers, internet, cable/satellite, and fast food of any kind and we dont have to worry about these conversations.

    Do you work for a pizza joint? Didn't think so, that means he wasn't addressing you. But nice interjection of hot air.

    That's funny, when gas goes up 20 cents people hit the roof. When pizza goes up 20 cents, it's "why complain?" Someone took the hypocritical oath, I see.

    And don't start giving me bull**** about the price difference. 20 cents is 20 cents, and excuses are excuses. I don't know if the left has 20 cents, but they sure have excuses.

    Except that all his competitors will have to provide employee health insurance too. Either they'll have to increases their prices in line with his, or he'll have to study what they do to provide the insurance without raising prices, and do the same. Simple.

    Dear John,
    How the hell can you call yourself a CEO? If costs go up 1% and you don't want to pass on the expense to your customers, do what everybody else does, reduce costs! Do you really think that your customers will notice 1% less pizza in the box?
    Or you can do what WalMart does, tell your suppliers to cut their expenses so they can charge you 1% less for the items you buy from them? AND, a final desperate move on your part, take a 1% hit on YOUR income so your employees can have health care insurance! Or did that never occur to you? There is more to being a business man than complaining loud and strong when someone suggests you do something weird like treating your employees nicely.
    Oh, John, you are such a Dick !!!!
