In response to Obama's re-election. Papa John's CEO John Schnatter has announced he will pass the costs of Obamacare on to his workers by cutting their hours.

The pizza magnate admitted that Obamacare had plus points: "the good news is 100 percent of the population is going to have health insurance." He explained his decision to cut ma hours as a necessity: "That's what you do, is you pass on costs. Unfortunately, I don't think people know what they're going to pay for this."

Earlier this summer, Schnatter got into what he calls "a bunch of trouble" for promising to increase pizza costs 10-14 cents as a way to offset costs of the Affordable Care Act.

Obamacare requires employers to provide health care for all employees working more than 30 hours weekly, and Papa John's and other restaurants plan to get round this by reducing their full-time staff. Other chains taking this route include Olive Garden and Red Lobster.

I expect the local hospital to close. It is no secret it is broke. How are they going to treat additional people with reduction in payments? Over 1/2 of their business is government and payments will be slashed for that group.

Add to the fact that there are several people there that work the minimum eligible hours to have employer covered health insurance. That too will increase bills they already can't pay.

Get ready to go to Madison, Louisville or northern KY. The good news is that you'll probably be better off at those locations.

Why is Obama Care any different from the lazy bums getting free medical care through the state.You pay for that. What about all these people who have kids aren't married and still have kids on a medical card when Mom or Dad could put them on work insurance. Must be why they choose to live together we pay for their food stamps and medical while Dad's checks go for the luxuries

Those that do not have insurance and go to the hospital are not always covered by the state. A few are with payment far below cost.

The big change is now these people have the opportunity to have insurance through medicaid. So now, they will show up with a card and get treatment. Do you think they'll use services like a person that has an out of pocket portion to pay up front.

Therefore, they will continue to use the emergency room like a doctors office. So they'll be more crowded and the expense of an emergency room visit is 20X higher than a physician office visit.

You see the government in their infinite wisdom didn't deal with poor choices, utilization or lawsuits. I guess that is because that would have upset their voting block.

All studies have concluded that the price of care will go up and fewer physicians will stay in the profession. Thank you Mr. Obama.

I proudly voted for Obama and I have a job, pay for my own food, have medical insurance and think you are all whiners. You are so entertaining in your misinformation. Watching Fox News much? It stands to reason that if more people are buying insurance, the price will eventually come down. Is it better for uninsured people to go to the emergency room? Who pays for that? I do. In the form of higher insurance costs. Get over it. You lost.

It's gonna get worse. Full time to Part-Time, 7.9% unemployment to 10.5%, Food will go up at a higher rate and so will gas, raising taxes on the rich will be passed onto the middle class at the cash register.

The fact is that paying the fine will be cheaper than putting employees on insurance plans. The price of insurance is going to continue to rise and so will the cost to care for these individuals. I hope you enjoying going to nurse practitioners because that is what is going to become of our health care as less people become doctors. The hard work and debt of medical school won't be worth it anymore. Voting for Obama was a vote to ruin this once great country.

What's the answer to the health care crisis? Pfizer was (the patent expired after 16 years) making about 13.1 billion a year (about 23 million a day...) on Lipitor. Viagra is the other Pfizer big one and accounted for about 2 billion a year. Anybody think they're charging too much; so much that it is immoral?

A guy from Kentucky called C-SPAN and said that he and his wife live on about 14,000.00 a year retired. He said he got a shunt recently; was in the hospital about 23 hours; the bill was 29,000.00. Anybody think they're charging too much?

If you see a medical helicopter flying around I think they're up to 12,000.00 to 14,000.00 now. Anybody think they're charging too much? The Insurance companies are not at fault. It's the healthcare providers and the pharmaceutical...
