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.

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?

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.

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.

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)

It´ll be a bit easier for Speaker John Boehner to get that famous tan now that he has a place in Florida. The Ohio Republican just bought a condo in tony Marco Island, FL, known for its tropical climate and white sand beaches. "This area of Florida has been the Boehners´ family vacation spot for many years, and rather than continue to put money into vacation rentals year after year, they decided to buy a condo. Their home is in West Chester, Ohio, and will continue to be,” Michael Steel, Boehner´s spokesman said.

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is contracted to purchase 704,390,250 rounds of ammunition over the next four years, which is equal to a total of about 2,500 rounds per DHS agent, according to a January 2014 Government Accountability Office (GAO) report entitled Ammunition Purchases Have Declined Since 2009. “If DHS were to purchase all 704 million rounds over the next four years, and if they were used by 70,000 DHS agents and officers, it would be roughly 2,500 rounds per agent per year,” David Maurer, author of the GAO report, told CNSNews.com.

The Seattle Seahawks have revealed that a good part of their defensive strategy at the Super Bowl came from the fact that they were able to decode Peyton Manning´s hand signals on the field. Controversial corner back Richard Sherman said that he and his fellow defenders cracked the code that the Denver Broncos quarterback was using, meaning that they knew exactly what to expect for each play. ´We knew what route concepts they liked on different downs, so we jumped all the routes.

Upon migrating to the United States many years ago, I embraced my new home and left the past behind. Never could I imagine that, at some point, that past would become relevant. But now, I am compelled to talk about it again. In the USSR, we had state-controlled media which shaped the narrative entirely. Our founder, Vladimir Lenin, was portrayed as a noble, charismatic, and smart man -- the champion of the underdog (the working class), the seeker of equality, defeater of the rich.

The Source of Obama´s Quest for
Detente with Iran
Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff    Original Article

It has been my contention that President Obama’s deal with Iran on nuclear weapons had little to do with stopping Iran from obtaining them, and much to do with his desire to achieve detente with the mullah-run Islamist regime. As I put it here: Obama isn’t motivated, as Israel and Saudi Arabia are, by a strong desire to keep Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons. That’s not the purpose of this deal. If it were, Obama would have held out for far more than what the mullahs gave him.

Gonorrhea and syphilis are on the rise in the U.S., mostly in men who have sex with men, a trend the government said is linked to inadequate testing among people stymied by homophobia and limited access to health care. The rate of new gonorrhea cases rose 4 percent in 2012 from the year before, while syphilis jumped 11 percent, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said today in a report. Rates for chlamydia, the most common of the bacterial sexually transmitted diseases, gained less than 1 percent.

Study names Virginia ‘Worst

Virginia is the worst state in the U.S. for burglars, according to a new nationwide study by a security systems company. According to statistics compiled by SimpliSafe Home Security Systems, Virginia homeowners are 46 percent less likely to be burgled than the national average. The study compares the legislative codes of all 50 states as well as the District of Columbia, and contrasts maximum and minimum burglary sentences, as well as maximum fines, as well as other factors. According to the study, Virginia has both the highest maximum fine for burglary--$100,000--as well as the toughest maximum prison sentence--life in prison.

ObamaCare and Dentistry

ObamaCare will change the American healthcare marketplace in unintended ways. It will have notable impact on the dental field, through mandated pedodontic coverage. Few people enjoy visiting the dentist; however, dental care may become more problematic. Within a few years, private dental care with a trusted and known practitioner may be limited. In the practice of medicine, a notable trend has been the movement of doctors toward employee status rather than owner/partner business practices. This relationship lessens the working hours that burden younger practitioner´s families and provides economic stability at a lower salary.

The HHS hiring notice states that it needs assistance in tracking and monitoring media stories so that HHS staff remain abreast of "how the department and its agencies are being cast in the public eye."

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.

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.

In a thoughtful blog post entitled ´Crying´, which has since been removed, Jane wrote: ´[I´ve been thinking], how come my tears are so close to the surface?
