Obama Brings the Pain–
Small business owner Judy Nichols, a Papa John’s franchise owner, told FOX and Friends today that she will be forced to cut her staff or pay an Obamacare fine of $40,000 that she cannot afford. Nichols says,

“Every restaurant you eat at is impacted negatively by this law.”

Look for several more restaurants to close in the coming months.

  1. Obama’s moocher nation could not give a rat’s behind about the problems of the economy and business.

    They have their condoms and free abortions and the rest of you can sod off.

  2. And the idiots on the left are reacting in a predictable manner, accusing these business owners of being sore losers. As if they make it a habit of laying off employees and cutting back hours when Democrats win election.

    The best part is their threat to boycott these companies. They better be prepared to never eat at any restaurants or buy food from supermarkets between now and January 2017.

  3. A business owner told my husband 2 1/5 years ago that this would happen. Businesses will drop health care becuase the fine is cheaper, and they’ll keep their businesses under 50 people to avoid the fine altogether.

    He also said that some businesses will be able to attract the absolute best workers by giving them private insurance and keeping them out of Obamacare. These will be executive level folks ONLY, even if the company has to break into two parts to do so.

  4. Restaurants have a very small profit margin. According to 2010 figures from the National Restaurant Association, limited-service restaurants had the highest before tax profit of any category of restaurant – about 6% of sales. http://smallbusiness.chron.com/average-profit-margin-restaurant-13477.html

    These significantly higher insurance costs &/or fines are going to seriously impact that. Expect the prices you pay when you go out to eat to increase significantly and more than a few restaurants to close their doors.

  5. Several Buisness owners have powsted thast there is a paragrph or section that pegs the
    number of employees at31, not 50. That is any company with 31 employees …

  6. I have seen many tweets or posts noting such cuts.nit will effect the youth vote. Romney and GOP did a horrible job explaining this.

  7. But we don’t want unhealthy restaurants like pizza places, BBQ shacks, fast food, unhealthy bleached wheat spaghetti joints, etc. Michelle Obama has been very clear on this: We all have to make sacrifices.

    Well, it starts now. This is second term and so far you people haven’t done much sacrificing. It’s pretty embarrassing, seeing your fat behinds waddling around the world when Michelle looks so incredible in her slim, $5000 blouses. You put her and Barack to shame.

    But you’re going on a diet now, America. No more pizza. Ribs. Burgers. That’s the King’s food (and even he gets told by Mama Queen Michelle when he can and can’t have some). Complaining about 16 oz. sodas? Why do you need soda?

  8. You hear that? She’s obviously threatening to cut wages too. We need a much higher federal minimum wage now and greater worker protections so these employers cannot simply fire people. If they just “let people go” then we’ll have to raise taxes to pay the unemployment. We cannot have that.

  9. These restaurants will go to touch screens/self serve formats, then Obama will blame the technology like’s its ATMs fault there aren’t enough banking jobs

    This law’s implementation is going to cause a major backlash the Gee Oh Pee needs to be ready to exploit…

  10. As the price of gas increases, people will be cutting back on dining out anyway…

  11. All those single moms and others who make a living working 35-50 hrs per week waiting tables will now have their hours cut back to part time. They will all have to try to pick up second jobs. So all the restaurants will essentially be sharing the same pool of employees while trying to juggles schedules. The managers of Chili’s, Applebees and Red Lobaster etc might as well sit down together for weekly meetings to do their schedules. What a mess.

    Man, liberals sure are stupid.

  12. I agree the companies need to put together websites about sharing employees so the workers can still get the hours they need. GOP should offer to raise taxes …just on democrats and make obamacare being eliminated as part of deal and let the left suck on that.

  13. That’s one way of getting rid of illegal aliens.

  14. QUOTE:
    A law the country didn’t want and upheld by a ridiculous Supreme Court ruling is now beginning to have it’s predicted effect: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970204707104578094941709047834.html?mod=WSJ_hp_LEFTWhatsNewsCollection

    Some low-wage employers are moving toward hiring part-time workers instead of full-time ones to mitigate the health-care overhaul’s requirement that large companies provide health insurance for full-time workers or pay a fee.

    Several restaurants, hotels and retailers have started or are preparing to limit schedules of hourly workers to below 30 hours a week. That is the threshold at which large employers in 2014 would have to offer workers a minimum level of insurance or pay a penalty starting at $2,000 for each worker.

    The shift is one of the first significant steps by employers to avoid requirements under the health-care law, and whether the trend continues hinges on Tuesday’s election results. Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has pledged to overturn the Affordable Care Act, although he would face obstacles doing so.

    That’s really going to help the job situation, isn’t it?

    When is government ever going to learn that its intrusion into the private affairs of men always has consequences, and, when they are outside the legitimate function of government in a free society, the effect is usually negative.

    Congratulations Democrats, you’ve done it again…http://www.qando.net/?p=14241

  15. This is all part of Obama’s plan to bring America down. He believes we’re evil. See 2016:Obama’s America (Amazon 3.99) and Dreams From My Real Father (Netflix). We’ve elected a destroyer in chief. Be aware and be prepared. He’s no where near done.

  16. And it goes on… believe it or not, Taco Bell offers limited benefits to full-time workers, such as vacation time and even a 401K. So now the owner decides he simply cannot afford to give them all healthcare, so he makes every full-time worker a part-time worker. Now look at how many people who had a fairly decent thing going on is affected… no more full-time benefits.

    To say nothing of the fact that now this business owner is going to have to have more people on staff, because now everyone is part-time… the cost of hiring and training and managing new workers is significant, and will also cut into profits.

    Obamacare’s threshold of 50 employees ENCOURAGES small businesses will remain small. I honestly can’t think of any program/requirement that could have so effectively put the brakes on Capitalism. Good job utterly destroying what made this country great, Dems.

  17. We closed our small restaurant the day after he was elected the first time. Kept telling the employees that all just loved Obozo that voting had repercussions, boy did they find out the hard way!

  18. O-Bam-A…O-Bam-A…..spit.

    And if they do, expect the Attorney General to come after them on charges of deliberately trying to circumvent the law.

    If history is any judge, that won’t happen. About a decade ago the Lebanon, New Hampshire, area had a great deal of job growth that left them with a negative unemployment rate – far more jobs than bodies to fill them. (My daughters were all working in the area at the time.) Employers in retail and food service all paid big premiums – some nearly 200% of what the same company paid in other areas. People drove in from 100 miles away to work fast food jobs. One thing none of those companies were willing to do, however, was share employees. No matter how many or how few hours their employees worked or how many employees that they had, all of them wanted 24/7/365 availability.

    Do you really think that with 5 or 6 or even more warm bodies available to fill every part time job almost anywhere in the country that companies are going to put themselves out to “share” employees?
