    Like-Like-Like!!!! I just knew!!!! I was doing something wrong. Population of the world: 7.046 billion. McDonald's serves 1% of them every day, or 70,460,000 x one penny x 365 = $2,571,790 per year.

    Never mind.

    Seeing how restaurants do not even pay their waiters and waitresses minimum wage I think the Obamacare fee is not sincere.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Well I wonder where people thought the money would come from? I guess they thought the owner would just pay for them out of their own pocket.

    Because people need to know why prices are rising. It's not greed, ok, it is but not by the owners. If Minimum wage is increased, they should put a minimum wage sure charge.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

    I read this earlier, I think it is pretty cool. I do not think most people realize all the additional taxes coming our way to help pay for Obamacare.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    With McDonald's it would be a mess. Corporate would have to take in the money then give it back to the franchisees to cover the costs.

    I don't think the IRS would like all that money moving around like that.
