    Obamacare Price Hike Cheered By Ian's Pizza

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/1...n_2133050.html

    " Martin, a part owner of Ian’s Pizza, a pizza shop with four locations in Wisconsin, said his business has offered full heath care coverage to its 50 full-time employees for years, making it all the more difficult to compete with national chains like Papa John's that pay workers low wages without health benefits.

    "This may level the playing field for us,” Martin said of the Papa John's price hike. “If they have to pay for benefits, and that pushes their prices up closer to ours, it will justify what we’ve been paying for and what we’ve been fighting to do the past few years.” "

    What? Small business can now compete against multinational chains...the horror!

    It really bugs me that the owner of Papa John is crying about having to raise prices a few pennies while he has a castle that literally has a moat around it.

    Fair share, fair shot.
    Obamacare is just the start.

    Pricier pizza, pricier meals
    The fiscal cliff will cop some feels.

    1. Shot and Start do not rhyme.

    2. "Obamacare" isn't what is behind this; rather it's just greed by the owner who, again, lives in a castle with a moat around it.

    3. Papa John's pizza sucks anyway.

    4. This has nothing to do with the so called "fiscal cliff".

    5. I am guessing you are MM75 under a different name, correct?

    La Rosas is better pizza, and they don't make insults against our president. End of.

    That is what I am saying. How is 20 cents a pricer meal? Does anyone even notice that? I wouldnt have even known the difference. Not that I ever eat at Papa Johns.
