    Papa John's CEO Says 'Obamacare' Will Up Pizza Price

    The CEO and founder of Papa John's pizza wants investors to know that when the president's health care law takes effect, the price of pizza is going up with it.

    This is one reason why business is not hiring. They don't know how much this bill will cost them.

    What's the guys excuse for skimping on the toppings...

    I tend to believe that if I order a pep and mushroom pizza, I should be able to taste them in everybite.

If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    With the requirement that business with more than 50 employees provide coverage, it's inevitable that those businesses who haven't in the past (or like some fast foods, have provided only mini plans), are going to have significant additional cost.

    That's obviously a cost. Restaurants already incur costs of other regulations, like meeting sanitary food prep standards. One could only say from a public policy perspective it's worth it, or it's not.

    It does raise the issue whether or not Obama made the right decision of how to spend his initial political capital in a time of economic crisis. Rahm and Nancy convinced him this was the best way.

    I hear yeah but was not my intention at all.

    Yes. I think I read it was just over a dime a pie, or the low teens. It comes from their financial calculations prepared for stockholders.

    I can see where that would make a difference when you are already charging too much for awful pizza.

    I can see it now... people are gonna be saying, "gee, I would have ordered pizza tonight, but that FOURTEEN CENTS is just too much for me".

    Better go get DiGiorno instead.

    You used to not have to pay a "delivery charge" either, but now chains are boinking everybody for $2-3 bucks just for that.
