West Palm Beach Restaurant Owner Adds Surcharge to Bills Because of Obamacare

Corporate heads and rich business owners are so in a huff over President Obama's reelection that they've decided to express their outrage by charging their customers more money and cutting back work outs for their employees.

That'll learn ya for voting for Obama, America!

Specifically, Papa John's CEO John Schnatter is so mad about Obamacare that he's going to start charging more for his shitty, watery, tomato-paste-drenched pizza.

And now, local restaurant owner John Metz is joining in on the buttclamping of his own business because he's supermad that Obama won the election.

Metz, who owns a Denny's franchise and Hurricane Grill & Wings, says not only is he cutting his employees' hours but he's also going to add a 5 percent surcharge to his customers' bills.

Because, Obamacare is oppressive (even though, it's not in any way shape, or form, especially to small-business owners).

Metz claims the Affordable Care Act is going to screw with his business and cost him money.

So, obviously, the solution is to charge more money and alienate customers and employees!

"Obviously, I'd love to cover all our employees under that insurance," he said. "But to pay $5,000 per employee would cost us $175,000 per restaurant, and unfortunately, most of our restaurants don't make $175,000 a year. I can't afford it."

That's terrific mathematics right there! Especially since the Affordable Care Act has yet to even get started. But math and random assumptions are an excellent reason to freak out and start dicking your employees. So good thinking, bro.

Never mind that the Affordable Care Act will not screw up Metz's business but may, in fact, actually help it.

But that's really not the point here, is it? Metz, like other company CEOs, are just looking for yet another excuse to screw their employees and raise prices and are using Obama's win as an excuse.

Papa John's is bitching about losing money when he and Peyton Manning were busy giving away millions of free pizzas.

And, like Metz, is apparently oblivious to the fact that there are other places customers can choose to go to and eat cheap, crappy food.

"Although it may sound terrible that I'm doing this," Metz said,"it's the only alternative. I've got to pass the cost on to the consumer."

No. It isn't. And no. You don't.

Maybe just do the right thing. Don't cut down on your employees' hours just to save a dime, and stop being so butthurt about Romney losing.

Also, keep in mind: There are plenty of other places that serve wings and grand slams, derp face.

Fuck him. The food sucks at his franchises anyway. Just don't go there. The biggest problem is FloriDUH is a right to work state. Which allows employers to make it a right not to get paid state.

Nice to see you can read.  Must have been a hard transition from cave drawings.

No, not Joe McCarthy.  I'm going to dig up some GREAT Dems like George Wallace, or maybe those bastions of grace and truth...The Kennedys. 

 

BTW pay the extra 14 cents extra per pizza and keep someone working, you cheap dole living lefttard

 I don't buy his shit pizza to begin with. Now, keep coming up with more of your frightwingnut sites. Like one of your own , Pyush said...

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal  urged his Republican Party to “stop being the stupid party.”..Here's another....

Former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour (R)...."We’ve got to give our political organization a very serious proctology exam," he said at the Republican Governors Association meeting in Las Vegas...

Give your self a proctology exam. Maybe you'll be able to locate the frightwingnut head.
