Yesterday Twitchy reported that the unhinged Left was targeting Applebee’s because one monstrous franchisee may implement a hiring freeze to deal with the financial realities of Obamacare. Today, the target is Papa John’s CEO John Schnatter.
Schnatter was hammered with Twitter abuse in August after he told shareholders he would raise prices to offset the cost of Obamacare. Now, he expects franchise owners will reduce employees’ hours rather than provide costly, mandated insurance coverage to people working 30 hours per week.
“That’s probably what’s going to happen,” he said. “It’s common sense. That’s what I call lose-lose.”
Do Obama voters truly believe there are no costs associated with implementing Obamacare? Businesses must prepare and protect themselves.

Classy. Oh, and clever!
The reality is that business owners are heartbroken about the layoffs forced by four more years of Obama’s catastrophic tinkering with the economy. Those same business owners are being attacked as vengeful, greedy and un-American by progressive screechers. Blame anyone but Obama for the president’s destructive policies, right libs?
Anyone up for a “buycott“?
