    Papa John's Pizza To Raise Prices Because Of Obamacare, CEO John Schnatter Says

    Papa John's CEO John Schnatter says that Obamacare will result in a $0.11 to $0.14 price increase per pizza, or $0.15 to $0.20 cents per order, Pizza Marketplace, a trade publication, reports. (Hat tip: @dkberman via Twitter.)
    Under Obamacare, the company, which is the third-largest pizza takeout and delivery chain in the United States, will have to offer health care coverage to more of its 16,500 total employees or pay a penalty to the government.


    OMG...a 15 to 20 cent increase on a 14.00 pizza to give 16,500 employees a chance at having health care...

    Anyone that doesnt believe thats a value is NUTS...because if they dont have insurance we will pay far more for their trip to the emergency room...

    Thanks to ObamaCare, your favorite pizzeria might be going out of business.

    That's assuming the same number of people order pizza.

    With price increases come volume decreases.

    The end result will be much more than that. Everything you buy will cost more, not just a stupid pizza.

    I rather pay less for a pizza and have the uninsured show up at our ER's for a infected tooth so we can all pay out the arse for it.

    Exactly. I certainly hope he wasn't cryin' about it. He should be celebrating. I pay 15-cents more for a pizza. 16,500 workers get health insurance. Talk about a freakin' bargain.

    So a man who has made several fortunes off the backs of his hard working employees without much concern over if they get sick or a child needs medical attention. But he did his good buddy commercials telling us how much he loves the buyer of his pizzas all the while treating his workforce like part time expendable labor.

    You have got to love folks who are making good money in the industry whine about having to treat their workers like real people!

    14 cents per pizza isn't going to drive down demand for pizza. Or for burgers, shakes and fries.

    Pretty punk-ass for so smiling a guy.

    I don't know anything about John Schnatter, but if you're going to attack him and claim that he has made "fortunes off the backs of his hard working employees without much concern over if they get sick or a child needs medical attention," I hope you have evidence.

    What do you actually know about their business? You act as though 20 cents is nothing, but you have no idea if that is true. They are in a very competitive market, you don't know that 20 cents isn't a price increase that will cause issues.

    HA! That's until Obama's brownshirts decide that pizza is unhealthy, and well...since they're now footing the bill for your health, then dammit no pizza for you. Welcome to Fascist America 2012.

    Yea, really. It's people that don't think price increases cause demand decreases that economists consider "clueless" about the economy.
