It's not the Republicans fault... it's not the Democrats fault, it is ALL of our faults as we have let the Federal Government and the Establishment agenda take more and more control over our lives... and let them pass more and more laws giving them more and more power.
This kind of thing does not happen overnight, under one President.
It happens incrementally....15 cents by .15 cents.
Over decades and decades... they have increased our taxes bit by bit, much of what we are taxed is hidden in the price of the products we buy and pay even more taxes on using cash that we've already earned and paid taxes on, driving a car that you bought and paid taxes on, with hidden taxes(drivers licence, insurance, registration)back and forth to that job using fuel that is taxed and also contains still more hidden taxes!!
Papa John is right, they have ENOUGH taxes!!!
They need to cut some of that FAT!!!!
Like Hillary Clinton and here 150 member entourage that are being put up in the poshest of hotels for their wine tasting in Australia!!!

She's WAY too busy to be bothered to testify about Benghazi!!
You're so worried about Papa John's .15 cents per pizza... but don't give a damn about Hillary spending millions on her friends on our tab!!!
Get a grip.
I know you intend well, but pick your battles a bit better!!!
I got a grip.who testified after the marine barracks was attacked under Reagan killing hundreds of marines? Double standard?

You're repeating blatant lies straight from Fox and Drudge. It's Teabagger stupidity to say that Hillary is partying in Australia.

I don't care about Papa John's pizza. I don't buy crap from a pizza joint. I don't think rich corporate fascists should be responsible for their workers health care. Taxes should be collected to fund universal socialized medicine like other civilized countries.

Please listen.Papa John made a decision to circumvent the 15 cents.He won't be the only one.I attach no particular blame to him.I'm practical.I simply state that workers in America get no respect.WORKERS, not freeloaders.

And the average wage has decreased a higher percentage for the average worker under the Obama administration than under any administration before it.

So much for standing up for the little guy.

Here we go, people are going to realize as we go along that our country is not getting better.
For the Life of me I can't understand what is so hard to understand; people that have worked to build a business DO NOT OWE their income to someone else. Start a business if you want to. People start from nothing all the time and make it.

Papa John estimates that Obamacare will end up costing his company $5-8 million annually. So the real cost is 3-5 cents per pizza.

The pizza giveaway promotion would be the equivalent of $24 million to $32 million in pizza revenue.

Many doctors are going to quit their practice. What good is insurance if you can't get an appointment? Some doctors are already not taking Medicare. Sounds good when you think everyone will have insurance, but where are we getting the money to pay for this service. AS A COUNTRY WE ARE BROKE. My parents did not have any insurance as they raised us. At least if it was an emergencey they borrowed the money. Today we have fund raises. Things are not free, someone has to pay. Rob Peter to Pay Paul???

Bake sales and fund raisers. That sounds like great healthcare insurance.

Great!!!

Re-call Hillary and all of her friends and cancel their little week long party in Australia... that ought to cover about two years of health insurance for Papa John's employees!!!

Problem solved!!!

.15 cents per pizza will not pay for healthcare for all of Papa John's employees... that's pie in the sky.

The real cost is far more than that.

You got it!. We the sheeple are caught between the corporate fat cats who only care about their millions of dollars salaries and use the government as a tool to make more and the truly worthless who get their freebees from the same government and keep expecting more.

Isn't it amazing that we know more about the Patraeus affair in two days... than we know about Benghazi in two months... or Fast and Furious in the last two years?

Our priorities as a country are screwed up... and that's not an accident.

It's all by design.

This may be the start of the ugliest 4 years in the USA history:

November 13, 2012
27 States Petition Federal Government to Secede After Election

Is this simply the product of a few thousand discontents in each individual state? Perhaps. But Texas’ petition has over 40,000 signatures, well over the 25,000 necessary to reach the attention of the President. If this turns out to be more than the discontented murmurings of a single state, this story may get ugly.

Additionally, here is a list of all the states with petitions to secede on WhiteHouse.gov :

Delaware
Nevada
Pennsylvania
Arizona
Oklahoma
Arkansas
South Carolina
Georgia
Missouri
Tennessee
Michigan
New York
Colorado
Oregon
New Jersey
North Dakota
Montana
Indiana
Mississippi
Kentucky
Florida
North Carolina
Alabama
Texas
Louisiana
