  1. So I see that the Papa John’s guy wrote a piece in Huffington Post ‘clarifying’ his comments on ObamaCare. I’d read it, expect a) it’s on HuffPo and b) if what he says is some kind of weaselly backtracking along the lines of ObamaCare being a wonderful thing and will not effect his company negatively at all I might throw my keyboard through the screen.

  4. #1, it won’t negatively affect the company, just like with taxes this legislation is a pass through, i.e. the employee gets the full effect.

    Obamacare will make us a part time nation

    In fact, major names in the service/hospitality industry (e.g., Denny’s, Olive Garden, Red Lobster and Longhorn Steakhouse) are already in the process of going to a part-time employee schedule for all employees. Thus, as a very possible consequence of the short-sightedness of the Affordable Care Act legislators, more people will be working two jobs to make ends meet.

    All the unemployed people should be thankful that when every full time job is eliminated due to ObamaCare, 2 part time jobs will take their place. See, Obama loves the poor, that’s why he makes more of them.
