Obamacare Will Raise Pizza Prices

Andi if it raises pizza prices you better believe it will touch everything we purchase. I guess this is the hidden tax of Obamacare!
Quote:
(Evann Gastaldo) ObamaCare may bring health insurance to the masses, but it will also bring them higher Papa John's pizza prices, Politico reports. In a conference call last week, CEO John Schnatter?a Mitt Romney supporter?revealed that should the Affordable Care Act go into effect in 2014 as scheduled, it will drive up the company's health-care costs ... which Papa John's will pass right along to its customers. The damage? An estimated "11 to 14 cents per pizza, or 15 to 20 cents per order."

"If ObamaCare is in fact not repealed, we will find tactics to ... pass that cost onto consumers in order to protect our shareholders' best interests," explained Schnatter. Papa John's is the nation's third-largest pizza takeout and delivery chain, the Huffington Post notes, and the health care law will require it to insure more of its 16,500 employees or pay a fine. Click for more, including how much ObamaCare will cost McDonald's.

and some studies show the rate of health care cost increases going down, or staying at the same rate of inflation or at least same overall, hasen't accelerated it but hasn't hit the point where it has anything to really slow it down yet until everyone has to buy in. the rate of healthcare inflation pre obamacare healthcare would be going up anyway.

so do you have any numbers that takes the rate of change difference into account?

It doesn't happen until 2014 according to the quotation.
