5% ObamaCare Surcharge at Denny’s

ObamaCare will make our lives worse in countless ways. Most of its costs will be passed along invisibly, so that they won’t be easy to separate from the inflation Obama’s malevolently reckless spending has made inevitable. Kudos to restaurateur John Metz for putting the price of Obama’s healthcare power grab right on the bill so that we can see what we are paying for:

President Obama’s election victory ensured his Affordable Care Act would remain the centerpiece of his first term in power — but that has left some business owners baulking at the extra cost Obamcare will bring.

Florida based restaurant boss John Metz, who runs approximately 40 Denny’s and owns the Hurricane Grill & Wings franchise has decided to offset that by adding a five percent surcharge to customers’ bills and will reduce his employees’ hours.

Hours must be decreased to avoid onerous federal demands regarding full-time employees.

The fast-food business owner is set to hold meetings at his restaurants in December where he will tell employees, ‘that because of Obamacare, we are going to be cutting front-of-the-house employees to under 30 hours, effective immediately.’

Fine with Obama. The fewer hours people work, the easier it is to get them hooked on food stamps. More dependency means more votes for Democrats, to summarize Obama’s economic policy.

It isn’t just “the rich” who will have to pay more.

    At Denny’s volume they will turn a profit from this 5%.
    On the other hand, I always thought Denny’s was where you ended up, not where you went.
    Watch, This is just the owners who GET IT!!!!!!!!

    Once more liberal lunacy gets smacked upside the head by reality! Helloooo out there liberals–anybody home?

    The ONLY money business get is by charging customers a price for their product. The costs of rent, raw materials, R&D, labor, taxes, power, etc., etc., etc. ALL come from the money paid by the customer for the product the business provides!

    Liberals never seem to be able to figure this little nugget out. They must be the stoopidest people in the world. Business don’t just have a pot of money that comes from pixie dust and unicorn farts.

    We need to get back to a small government and an actual federal system.

    Ending the fed and getting on a metal standard wouldn’t hurt either.

    Ironic isn’t it? Remember back over the years to all the supposed racial problems Denny’s was accused of. Now they have to pay 5% more. Maybe Obama will issue them a Mandatory Corporate Restaurant Discount card.

    What do you want to bet that their main office donated millions to the Obama reappointment campaign? Hmm. Nothing fishy there.

    Every business should display the OBAMACARE SURCHATGE on the customers receipts in big black letters. Oh wait, maybe use RED letters since makng them black would probably be considered racist. Oh wait, Red isnt good either since that might infer Native Americans. Better make it HOT PINK.

  • Comrade J

    No corporate office donations is Open Secrets has it correct. Just individuals

    Dennys and Papa Johns will do just fine… and so will Chick-fila!

    Sorry about your luck, Libtards….. LOL

  • bobdog

    Chris Matthews and the NAACP to condemn this decision as racist in 3…2…1…

  • Mr Evilwrench

    Interesting thing about those sites that let you see who donated to whom… employers may just happen to notice them. It would be a shame if some people became unemployed, wouldn’t it?

  • JNN

    This should be done with ALL govt. regs and taxes. I know we have alot of free loaders but there are plenty of mis-informed out there as well. Let them see what they are paying for and then lets see how great a tax hike sounds.

  • ed

    I’ll bet all the Denny’s customers who voted for O will be bitching about it.

    break out the popcorn, this will be fun to watch.
