We'll start with the ever so predictable "Papa John's Appreciation Day".  C'mon, America!  Get out and show your support for the guy who will do whatever he can to avoid giving his employees healthcare!  *Special bonus points for the added part about buying an extra pie for someone you know who might be suffering right now.*

"Hey...I know you need surgery, but look!  It's pan crust!"

And then, of course, there are the 15 petitions started by various states now asking to peacefully secede from the USA.  So much for love of country.

Well this lefty, read that facebook page, and he's still clueless about this event.  What exactly are we all supposed to appreciate about John H. Schnatter???  I mean what is the rationale given to the right wingers who would participate?


I totally agree Thunter. The only things I see listed are:  He is going to cut employee hours. (Not clear why?)  And that the left hates him and caricatures him.

Hmmmm.

I don't like Papa John's pizza. My employer will occasionally have Papa John's pizza delivered and when it is 3:00 am and I'm starving I'll eat it but I would never actually pay money for that crap.

I don't either.  To be honest, I don't really care for any of the big chain pizza outfits.  They're all very heavy and kinda...blah seeming.  Anyway - what gets me is how an additional 14 cents per pie has now suddenly translated into cutting people's hours out altogether.

To be fair, I have also never read the newest Affordable Care rules that coming on line soon.

Is this it?

Company sponsored insurance for 30 hour plus employees.  For all companies over 50 employees.

If not provided, then a fine of 2000 a year per employee.

So what will companies do:

1)  Reduce hours to have less employees at 30 plus.  A few chains say they have done this and are studying the effect on production, and customer satisfaction... (HAHAHAHA - and not on employee quality of life....??)

2) Just pay the fine.  By many accounts, 2000 is MUCH cheaper than a years health insurance.   Pay the fine, but maybe suffer the shame.  But again, if 49% of people think Affordable care is a travesty financially and culturally, they will get PLENTY of support for NOT providing health care.  And having to pay a fine to the socialist Dem government.

3) I think some studies say that cutting hours, reducing full time employees, and paying the fine, WOULD hurt the company's bottom line.  So maybe some will just pay up?

I could imagine that a lot of this forced company insurance for full-time employees, will be cut rate and filled with huge co-pays, etc....

Obama wins by a small margin.  But this shift to universal care is going to take a major shift in public mindset, and compromise, and ironing out the kinks.   Many many years, I imagine.

At least the US is finally trying to do it!
