Most likely, as with "Chick-u-lay" {sp}, these companies will see in increase in business because most see the stupidly and hardship Obamacare brings. Actually though, food chains cutting employee hours falls right into Obama's only plans to squash "unemployment." As employee hours are reduced they'll have to hire more people to fill the gaps; thus unemployment is reduced and a new-norm established for the work week. Thomas Jefferson said " that as long as Americans know the facts, they won't make any mistakes." Not only do too many Americans not know the facts {the election proves that} Americans don't care that they don't know the facts. If you are givin', I'ma takin'..."free" is the favorite word for so many...it's addictive !!

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.
