    Exactly. Puh-leeze, with the "going out of business" nonsense.

    It won't be Papa Bill, tho. I take home more money retired than when working. No sense in me working and taking a job away from a youner person who needs the job.
    But if I had a business, and govt mandated the same rules to all my competitors, I would find a way to deal with it, without appealing to the public, aka whining....

    Who is willing to spend $20 per pie who is not willing to spend 20.25 for a pie?
    Seriously?
    You are looking ONLY at the price increase of a pizza pie for that SINGLE labor cost increase (at ONLY the pizza store), but that is not ALL that will go up, the price of the dough, sauce, cheese and other toppings go up as well (they require labor to produce too). The cost of the vehicles, buildings, utilities and fuel used by EVERYONE involve labor too. The bottom line is that PPACA raises ALL U.S. labor costs so ALL U.S. prices will go up but NOT the U.S. worker's pay; that, my friend, is called INFLATION, the invisible "tax" that will help depress our economy even further. Yes they can!

    So, in other words, it's a tax.

    Won't even get into promises not to raise taxes on the middle class, etc.

    But will point out that it's an "evil" consumption tax.

    And that as a tax, it impacts the lowest-income echelons the most severely.

    Which is what's called a "regressive tax" by some.

    LOL. Yep it is called INFLATION. The costs of all goods and services go up but not the wages of the workers.

    I see no reason to think that a small increase in the price of a pie will lead to anything but, at most, a correspondingly small decrease in demand.
    But, I also expect that the effect of a price increase below a certain threshold will have a negligible impact.

    A quarter certainly isn't enough to stop me or anyone I know of from ordering some pizza.
    I may be wrong.

    Oh noez, poor people can't buy a greasy pizza loaded with fat, salt and nitrates.

    Now they'll have to buy cheaper inferior products, like fresh fruits and veggies and rice. Horror of horrors...

    Not really since the benefits are going to those who can't afford healthcare. The medical benefits are a greater cost than 25C a pizza, if you get what i'm saying.

    Oh, I see you blew right past the actual point.

    I guess regressive taxes are OK as long as they support something you approve.
