    It's not going out of business, it's simply charging more for pizza because they found a convenient excuse for doing so. Let's try not to use such stupid statements in the future.

    Im not upset that it goes up...Im all for it. Businesses always have and always will press the cost for more government regulation onto the customer. Its the way it works. Upset? nah...not upset. Hell...I said several months ago that the best thing the wealthy business owners could do in this country would be across the board just quit. I still believe that. Papa John should acknowledge he is an evil corporate guy and close up shop. The Waltons...same thing. They should stop 'exploiting' the country and the workers and just shut everything down.

    All of this because of POSSIBLE increases, not definite ones.
    I think your missed the point, it's not just 20 cents more, it's 20 cents or more on everything you buy. Further to the point, as I said, Obama said health care cost would go down, never happened, but worse yet everything else is going up. So because of Obamacare, the cost of health care is going up, and prices for goods and services are going up. Now the rich could care less, but Obama's favored middle class is paying more for everything, and be taxed (punished) is they don't comply with his demands. Obamacare = Rising Cost, this is nothing new, the Pub's predicted this day one.

    This isnt a matter of the cost of pepperoni going up. This is a requirement to provide insurance. Just a tiny bit more expensive...and BTW...he DOES know that costs go up, and when costs go up they adjust their prices up...right? Isnt that what you blasted him for?

    This is just the beginning. You get that...right? EVERYONES costs are going to go up...surely you see that?

    Does the law solely affect PJ's?
    Or doe sit affect all pizza companies?
    Cause if it's all of them, it seems that there's not much change in the relative advantage or disadvantage among the competitors.
    I may be wrong.

    With any luck we are entering an era where healthcare is finally being addressed without all the drama.
    yeppers, the reason healthcare is so high in the USA is because the suppliers can charge pretty much what they want.
    You and I as individuals can't negotiate, but your employer can....and medical services providers give each other discounts that they won't offer to the patient who might be paying out of pocket.
    If you need an MRI on YOUR DIME, it is several times more than what your insurance company would be charged. Same for drugs.

    Some price increases would have that effect.
    But a quarter on a pie... Come on.

    Who is willing to spend $20 per pie who is not willing to spend 20.25 for a pie?
    Seriously?

    I am retired for 8 years now, since age 58....and saw this coming back then. Salaries are often THE biggest expense, and not too hard to trim when they really want to cut costs....
    So increased unemployement or wage cuts is the EXPECTED result of PPACA in your opinion? That is certainly reassuring. LOL
