The Daily Mail Online is reporting that the owner of 40 Dennys restaurants in will add a 5% surcharge to customers bills in order to meet the costs he will be forced to incur under ObamaCare beginning in 2014. To pay $5,000 per employee would cost us $175,000 per restaurant and unfortunately, most of our restaurants dont make $175,000 a year. I can't afford it.
Were trying to get more restaurant operators rallied around the concept of adding a 5 percent surcharge to their bill to cover the costs of Obamacare as opposed to raising prices, he said.
Heck, why stop at restaurants? Lets see all businesses with full-time employees add an explicit ObamaCare Surcharge to customer bills. Theyre going to have to pass along the costs to consumers anyway. Why not be up-front with us?
