Denny´s to charge 5%
´Obamacare surcharge´ and
cut employee hours to deal
with cost of legislation

Daily Mail (UK), by James Nye

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/15/2012 10:53:01 AM

President Obama´s election victory ensured his Affordable Care Act would remain the centerpiece of his first term in power - but that has left some business owners baulking at the extra cost Obamcare will bring. Florida based restaurant boss John Metz, who runs approximately 40 Denny´s and owns the Hurricane Grill & Wings franchise has decided to offset that by adding a five percent surcharge to customers´ bills and will reduce his employees´ hours. With Obamacare due to be fully implemented in January 2014, Metz has justified his move by claiming it is ´the only alternative.

I think that every business who will inevitably pass the
charge on to customers should call it the Obamacare surcharge.
Put the blame right where it belongs.

#4 I noticed the same thing about their pancakes. International House of Pancakes has worse pancakes than Denny´s. They must use cheap mix from China. If they would switch over to Krusteaz PC mix, they would be hitting a homerun with them. Secret ingredient mixing up Krusteaz is to use 7-Up instead of water. MMmmmmmm MMmmmmmm Gooood!

Lots of employers are reducing hours and raising prices to limit the damage to their businesses due to BambamCare.

Brave folks like this owner and the CEOs of Applebee´s and Papa John´s are going out of their way to point it out--they deserve our support.

When I read this article earlier on Huff, the comments were just plain ignorant. Employees have no clue about the real cost of benefits or even the owner´s match. Never care about the owner´s paying worker´s comp or liability insurance premiums.

More business owners need to step up to the plate and said No way No how.

Senate Minority Leader McConnell
sees no hope for tax overhaul
this year
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 2/25/2014 4:45:08 PM     Post Reply
Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell says he sees no hope for enactment of tax overhaul legislation this year, and blames the Democrats for trying to use the issue to raise revenue by $1 trillion. The Kentucky Republican said Tuesday the object of overhauling the tax code should be making the nation more competitive, not raising more money for the government. McConnell´s comments undercut the Republican chairman of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee, Rep. Dave Camp of Michigan. He is expected to outline his plan for overhauling the tax code on Wednesday. The senator´s remarks also marked the second time

If you think the Kennedy dynasty seems to have lasted forever, that’s nothing compared to Michigan’s 12th congressional district, where Democratic Congressman John Dingell, Jr., 87, who succeeded his father in 1955 and is the longest serving Congressman in U.S. history, announced on Monday that he is stepping down. Dingell is tacitly encouraging his wife, Debbie, 60, to replace him. He mentioned her when asked about his successor, saying “But if she runs — the lovely Deborah — I will vote for her.” The Washington Post now reports that Debbie Dingell will run to take her husband´s seat.

International flight security concerns have been raised as passengers on board a flight from London to New York´s JFK were left to bypass immigration when the plane arrived at the wrong terminal. Passengers on the Delta Air Lines fight were let out into a section of the airport where they did not have to pass through immigration or customs. They were only stopped when airport employees realised they were in the wrong part of the airport. The passengers from the flight, Delta 3, which took off from Heathrow, found that instead of their expected customs and immigration check, they instead

(Video) Conservative activist and rocker Ted Nugent, whose comments referring to President Barack Obama as a "subhuman mongrel" sparked outrage across the political spectrum, insisted Monday that his remarks were not racist. In an interview with CNN´s Erin Burnett on "OutFront," Nugent said he would "stop calling people names," but he didn´t back off the incendiary rhetoric that landed him in the political spotlight in recent weeks. "Instead of using terms like ‘subhuman mongrel,’ I´m going to get right to the meat of the matter where our president is a liar. He lies about you can keep your doctor period.

The AFL-CIO is conceding its union lacks the power in the South to influence the upcoming 2014 elections, so it is not investing heavily in three hotly contested Senate races. The AFL-CIO looked at the number of union members in Arkansas, Louisiana, and North Carolina and decided it just was not worth it. AFL-CIO political director Michael Podhorzer confessed, "Those states are states where we have relatively low union density. I think you´ll see in other battleground Senate states like Michigan, Alaska, [and] Iowa a really vigorous union program." Democratic Sens. Mark Pryor in Arkansas, Mary Landrieu in Louisiana, and

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) says President Obama could use his pen and his phone to create jobs if he really wanted to. "What worries me is it appears to me that after more than five years of being in office, the president is waving the white flag of surrender. It seems to me the Obama economy is now the minimum wage economy. And the reality is, America can do better.

WASHINGTON – Even the scoreboards in high school gyms eventually will have to promote good health. Moving beyond the lunch line, new rules that will be proposed Tuesday by the White House and the Agriculture Department would limit marketing of unhealthy foods in schools. They would phase out the advertising of sugary drinks and junk foods around campuses during the school day and ensure that other promotions in schools were in line with health standards that already apply to school foods. That means a scoreboard at a high school football or basketball game eventually wouldn´t be allowed to advertise Coca-Cola,

Will virtual reality help airline

Airline seats are unlikely to get more comfortable any time soon. In fact, a recent seat analysis in the Wall Street Journal found that seat sizes are trending down, not up. But might science have a solution to this problem? Perhaps. The German technology company Fraunhofer IAO has proposed using virtual reality technology to immerse travelers in a more pleasant flying experience. It calls the technology VR-Hyperspace. In this airplane of the future seat sizes remain the same, but the backs of seats and walls, ceilings and floors are covered with display surfaces and flat-screen TVs.

A few years ago I participated in a radio debate on "white privilege" with a certain man, whose name is unimportant, who had a Ph.D. in "ethnic studies." At one point he introduced an argument by saying, "If whites are 80 percent of the population...," which prompted me to interject and point out that whites (non-Hispanic) are now only 63 percent of America. Of course, you might think that someone with a doctorate in "ethnic studies" would know what the ethnic and racial composition of the country is.

President Obama’s remark that “We’ve got close to seven million Americans who have access to health care for the first time because of Medicaid expansion” achieved the dubious assessment of Four Pinocchios from "The Fact Checker" (a.k.a. "The Truth Behind the Rhetoric" by Glenn Kessler of The Washington Post). Four Pinocchios designates the highest form of prevarication one can commit on The Fact Checker scale. Simply put, Obama told a “Whopper.” The seven million figure, according to Kessler, most likely comes from the 6.3 million people that were deemed eligible for Medicaid from October 1 to December 31, 2013.

MANILA, Philippines— Police clashed briefly in the Philippine capital Tuesday with about 300 protesters opposed to a planned visit by President Barack Obama and continued U.S. military presence in the country. Riot police holding up shields across a road from the U.S. Embassy were pushed back by the demonstrators, prompting the police to retaliate with truncheons. Carrying placards saying "US troops out now" and "Obama not welcome," the protesters allied with the May One Movement workers´ federation were able to hold a brief program of speeches denouncing U.S. imperialism in front of the seaside embassy before dispersing peacefully.

The Obama administration is launching an “attack” on the Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D programs as part of Obamacare that will result in higher costs and fewer health care options for seniors, according to a U.S. House subcommittee. The administration is quietly introducing “policies that would undermine the integrity and success of the Medicare Part D program” according to the subcommittee. President Bush signed Medicare Part D into law in 2003 to subsidize prescription drug costs for Medicare beneficiaries. The Daily Caller has learned that the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Health will hold a hearing Feb.

There have been times when the CNN host Piers Morgan didn’t seem to like America very much — and American audiences have been more than willing to return the favor. Three years after taking over for Larry King, Mr. Morgan has seen the ratings for “Piers Morgan Live” hit some new lows, drawing a fraction of viewers compared with competitors at Fox News and MSNBC. (Snip) It’s been an unhappy collision between a British television personality who refuses to assimilate — the only football he cares about is round and his lectures on guns were rife with contempt — and a CNN audience that

The Obama administration warned Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday not to react too aggressively to the fast-moving developments in Ukraine, where pro-Western demonstrators forced the nation’s Moscow-backed president from power over the weekend. National Security Adviser Susan E. Rice said the situation unfolding in Kiev “reflects the will of the Ukrainian people and the interests of the United States and Europe,” and that Russia would be making a “grave mistake” if it sends in military forces to try to reverse the developments — or to seize control of pro-Moscow eastern Ukraine. The Putin government has shown no outward signs

Former Vice President Dick Cheney responded Monday night to the Obama administration’s proposal to cut the U.S. Army to its lowest point since before World War II. Calling into Fox News’ “Hannity,” Cheney declared the proposed cuts to be “absolutely dangerous” and “just devastating.” “I have not been a strong supporter of Barack Obama. But this really is over the top. It does enormous long-term damage to our military,” Cheney said. ”They act as though it is like highway spending and you can turn it on and off.
