Today's Friday news happened two weeks ago. You might have noticed that, over the past few months, not much has been said about Obamacare and the immoral HHS mandate that requires public funding for abortions. I think everyone was waiting to see what the results of the Presidential Election would be, before making official statements on Obamacare.
Now that President Obama (and consequently, Obamacare) is here to stay, people are starting to speak up about it. And by "people", I mean "corporations", which are not people. Big corporations are strongly opposed to Obamacare, because they don't want to pay for their employees' health care.
Quiz time! What are corporations, like Papa John's, Walmart and Denny's, doing as a response to Obamacare?
a) Increase prices, to offset the money of paying for health care.
b) Demote as many employees as possible to part time workers.
c) Both 1 and 2.
The answer is "c". Note that these corporations currently make more than enough money to give healthcare to all their employees. They just don't want to, because that would cut into profits.
In what I like to call "ridiculously cruel", restaurants that implementing an imaginary 5% Obamacare tax recommend that customers make up for it, by only giving waiters a 10% tip. That's taking a 5% tip away from minimum-wage workers, and giving it to the millionaires instead. Ugh.
