Libs are very peeved at Denny's, judging by posts at HuffPo, for proposing an obamacare surcharge. I had to ask them why they aren't willing to subsidize other people's healthcare....

MacQ, I do hope you showered after visiting HuffPo. I always feel the need to afterwards, but hey, someone has to vsit it to keep the rest of us informed on what the libs are up to.

It requires anti-emetics too....I really can't take it all that often, but it's given me some real entertainment. Like the one who was afraid all the water was going to drain out of the gulf through the hole created by the BP explosion. (True I swear)

Mostly it's a hatefest. Libs are truly unhappy people.

they should be applauding Denny's since it is the classic marxist case of using other people's money

They're not down with it when it's THEIR money.

Every restaurant (and retail business for that matter) should make it very visible to their customers why prices are going up and service is being cut. Denny's has found a way to do that and still maintain a relationship with their customers.

a 5% Obamacare surcharge on the bill... rather than higher prices that hide the reason for the increase... is a great way to be honest with the customer.

I think so too. Part of the reason people keep voting for more goodies is that they never see the consequence to their own wallet. They blame business for high prices. The blame oil companies for gas prices (failing to realize that the govt gets a bigger % of every dollar than the oil company does)

Not only every restaurant, but every business, including doctors and hospitals, should make the cost of Obamacare visable to their customers. If Obamacare remains in effect I predict that most every business will drop their health insurance plans, pay the government fine of $2,000 per employee per year, save $8,000 per employee per year and tell employees to go find themselves a "health insurance exchange". At that point employers would no longer have to include insurance in union negotiations, no longer have to deal with state and/or federal health insurance mandates, worry about annual insurance rate increases, listen to employee complaints about their insurance, or hire lawyers, insurance brokers or consultants to deal with...

MacQ:
I'm sure you are getting well-reasoned replies. (Sarcasm off.)
Exactly two years ago this week, the Obama administration announced it had issued more than 100 waivers en masse to a select group of companies, unions and other health insurance providers seeking relief from the onerous federal health care law. The Obamacare waiver winner's club now totals 2,000. Where are they now?

Answer: In the same miserable boat as every other unlucky business struggling with the crushing costs and burdens of the mandate.

Among the first and most prominent recipients of the Obamacare waivers for favors were large restaurant chains that provide low-wage, seasonal and part-time workers with low-cost health insurance plans called...
