Five Guys: Obamacare will
boost burger prices

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Original Article

Posted By:ScarletPimpernel, 3/11/2013 7:25:11 PM

The fight over Obamacare, so far held at the 30,000-foot level, is about to hit home. The latest impact hot off the grill: prices of burgers and hot dogs at Five Guys, the national chain that started in Washington, are going to rise to cover the president´s mandated insurance coverage. "Any added costs are going to have to be passed on," said Mike Ruffer, a Five Guys franchise holder with eight of the popular restaurants in the Raleigh-Durham, N.C. area.

Comments:
Another previously thriving business is going to take a hit.

Zero the Worthless was keen on erecting signs to celebrate his "stimulus" spending, seems only right that businesses start adding an "Obamacare Surcharge" line on their bills.

Over time ObamaCare will boost everything.

Any who say no are stoopid.

I love Five Guys burgers and fries. I´ll continue to support them. None of this is their fault. One of my favorite BBQ restaurants closed because of Obamacare and Obama´s economy. The destruction of small businesses continues apace.

Said another way, I ate there once but I see no reason to ever eat there again. There are TOO MANY other places. Maybe it IS their fault if they are already raising their prices instead of cutting staff.

To survive, any business must pass on its costs to its customers. If you pay out more than you take in you go out of business and lay off all your employees...

Any retailer, food, service provider etc should LIST the extra costs due to Obamacare as a separate charge. Hamburger and fries ..... $5.99, Obamacare surtax $0.50.

If retailers did this across the nation, the low information voters would find out real fast just who is paying for all the "free" stuff. And democrats would be in real trouble, real quick. Come on guys! ....... break it out! Show your customers exactly why the price is going up! Show the "fuel" charges. Show the medicare...show the regulatory costs.....show the business license expense. You doctors.....list out the added charge due to malpractice insurance.

People think that business raises prices because they are greedy. Come on! Show your consumers that the city, county, state and federal government gets more of your profit than you do!

I am DEADLY serious about this!

If your a business owner, tired of being called greedy and told that you need to pay "your fair share", show your consumers and your employees just what it costs to run a business. Heck! Put up a poster listing your expenses!

Brace yourselves for the destruction that Obamacare does to our 150 year old family business...
Our ranch supports my husband, me, our five children and 18 grandchildren. Our business model does not allow us to raise prices to buyers, therefore the onerous cost of Obamacare must be found somewhere in our razor thin margin.
Rather than compromise our business or morals to support this communist program, my husband is forced to fire all of our family members and other full- time staff. We will have to hire non-family part time and seasonal workers to support our operation. And, yes, some of them will probably be "mojados".
Not only will my family be out of work, our family business is destroyed by that Muslim Communist in the White House.
How can this be the America I was raised in?

These guys (five brothers) invested a lot in this business. They seem to have a good business model, not too many employees at one time, a good product, decently fast service. They could hardly cut back on employees. They serve good food, at a reasonable price. Any one who takes a job with them knows the deal. But, I would pay more, if required. I don´t eat much meat, but I love their single cheeseburger with pickles, mustard, and jalapeños.

#4, if they cut staff as you suggest, they will have to give the rest more hours, resulting in having to provide insurance for the now full time employees. So how do you see cutting staff saving money?

Bingo # 14 - if they have to post calories, put it up on the menu

Burger and Fries $5.99

State and local tax .85

Cost added by Obamacare 1.35

Total cost of your Lunch $8.99

Goverement gets $2.20 of your lunch money.

Reminds you of the bully at school huh?

But they won´t have the guts to do it.

Not only will I be adding an Obamacare surcgharge I will be adding a fuel surcharge too. As fuel costs soar and stay above $4 a gallon and soon to be hitting close to $5 here in California with the new state fuel tax increase coming, and adding in my higher income tax rates and across the board material cost increases, it´s going to get ugly. I will have to lay people off, cut hours, sell some vehicles and scale back big time, and cater to only customers that can afford to pay the price and are willing to accept my high quality at whatever price it comes in at.

Most people have no idea how thin the profit margin is for businesses.

Remember when the price sign at the gas station used to list how much tax was included in the price?

Amen #19. We ate there 2 or 3 years ago. For 3 people, the bill came to $36. This is fast food? The food was good, but nothing you can´t find at a dozen other joints.

I wish them luck, but if they ever supported the fraud in the WH, they deserve everything they´re getting.

Gotta laugh. Everyone whining over the cost of burgers at Five Guys. How come I don´t hear any whining about "what happened to the 99 cent Whopper that now costs over $3.00?

Remember when gas was 10 cents a gallon and went up to the ridiculous price of 25 cents per gallon?

All of this long before Obamacare.

Let´s give credit where credit is due - the 51% who voted for Obama. (spit)

Who is Harrison J. Bounel, and might the name suggest something about possible Obama ID fraud? To be sure, healthcare.gov’s failure to verify Obama’s identity implies nothing whatsoever as to whether ordinary citizens should question it. Undoubtedly, the system glitch represents nothing more, and nothing less, than yet another instance of racist computers conspiring against Obama. The Harrison J. Bounel controversy revolves in part around the fact -- contested by no one -- that a personal information database, housed in yet another presumptively racist computer, linked Obama’s Hyde Park Chicago home address and SSN with the name “Harrison J. Bounel.”

Within the context of keeping the Syrian jihad alive, it seems there is no end to the attempts of some Islamic clerics to legitimize otherwise forbidden behavior in order to gratify the sexual urges of the jihadis and keep them fighting Syrian president Bashar Assad. First, there was the now infamous “sex-jihad” fatwa, which holds that any Muslim woman who willingly allows her body to be used by the sexually-deprived jihadis becomes herself a jihadi, if not a “martyr,” deserving of all the honor and rewards associated with those titles.

The soldier who opened fire at Fort Hood army base on Wednesday has now been identified as Ivan Lopez, a 34-year-old married father who had just moved to Texas with his wife and young daughter three weeks before the shooting. Lopez previously served in the Army National Guard in Puerto Rico and did one four-month tour of duty in Iraq occurred in 2011. He was not wounded in action while serving overseas, but self-reported a traumatic brain injury upon his return to the U.S.

Ezekiel Emmanuel´s Reaper Curve
American Thinker, by Fred N. Sauer    Original Article

Ezekiel Emanuel has written extensively, before and after he helped draft ObamaCare, about who should get medical care, who should decide, and whose life is worth saving. Emanuel is part of a school of thought that redefines a physician’s duty, insisting that it includes working for the greater good of society instead of focusing only on a patient’s needs. Many physicians find that view dangerous, and most Americans are likely to agree.

It is a tender, natural and intimate portrait which shows, for the first time, something of the personality of young Prince George. Released on his first Mothering Sunday, this official portrait – in a relaxed style perfectly reflecting the Duke and Duchess’s very modern approach to Royalty – depicts the eight-month-old as a curious, affectionate toddler, gazing into the eyes of the family’s beloved Lupo. George seems devoted to the cocker spaniel and, judging by the adoration on Lupo’s face, the sentiments are returned.

The October Surprise that Could

You won’t read about the International Classification of Disease (ICD) on TMZ or hear it discussed on The View, but it has the potential to be an unpleasant October surprise in the health care world. It is a list of codes that physicians and hospitals use when billing insurance companies. These codes cover all manner of medical diagnoses for diseases, conditions, and injuries. The first version of the ICD appeared in 1946, with periodic revisions since. Six months from now, on October 1, the latest version, the ICD-10, will be implemented in the U.S.

For eight years, the media envisioned Dick Cheney as the ‘evil genius’ behind the Bush White House, but few in the media have wanted to take a long look at the ‘evil genius’ behind the Obama White House. The populist grass roots myth died shortly after Obama was elected and while plenty of books have been written about the internal workings of the Obama campaign and administration, unlike the books written about Bush, they rarely inform mainstream media news coverage.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Dole: Cruz, Paul & Rubio

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
