D cutting hours does not show obamacare does not work - it shows that the private sector will cut YOUR hours if it means holding onto THEIR PROFITS!! HAVING people uninsured is a big big problem in this country, it cost a lot of money to hospitals when people can't pay their massive bills and thus increases the cost of hospital care for people with insurance - its a cruel cycle that would end very badly - obamacare is not ideal but it is a step in changing healthcare in USA. Medical care should be for everyone - like education - like using the post office - LIKE if your house is on FIRE you know you can call the fire department - EVERYONE can. :) :hearts: [/quote] Homeowners pay property tax to fund fire departments. Property tax, state and federal tax for education. Post office ??? you pay for stamps and taxes cover the PO losses. My point? We will pay higher tax for Obamacare. So when you say everyone should have coverage, fine, but someone is paying for it. Remember, if one person get something he does not earn, someone else erans something he does not get. [/quote] By the way, I live in Canada and here we do have state run insurance and YES we do pay it with taxes - and let me tell you that there is a strong middle class here, high taxes for a higher quality of life. no pun intended [/quote] Canadians and other peoples come to the US to avoid waits, to get timely treatment. But then again, Americans go to India and other places to avoid high costs. No system is perfect. The point I was making is, nothing is free, especially health care. Something can only be 'free' to one person costs another person. The point is for those who think everybody gets health care and that system has no cost. [/quote]
President Obama's election victory ensured his Affordable Care Act would remain the centerpiece of his first term in power - but that has left some business owners baulking at the extra cost Obamcare will bring.
Florida based restaurant boss John Metz, who runs approximately 40 Denny's and owns the Hurricane Grill & Wings franchise has decided to offset that by adding a five percent surcharge to customers' bills and will reduce his employees' hours.
With Obamacare due to be fully implemented in January 2014, Metz has justified his move by claiming it is 'the only alternative. I've got to pass on the cost to the customer.'
The fast-food business owner is set to hold meetings at his restaurants in December where he will tell employees, 'that because of Obamacare, we are going to be cutting front-of-the-house employees to under 30 hours, effective immediately.'
