One business owner has come up with his own way of surviving the implementation of Obamacare. 

John Metz, the owner of 48 Denny’s restaurants will be adding a 5% ‘Obamacare’ surcharge to each customer’s tab.  He is also reducing the wait staff to 30 hours a week. 
Elections have consequences.  I like what this man is choosing to do.  MORE private business owners need to follow suit by adding a surcharge and calling it what it is – the increased expense of doing business BECAUSE of Obamacare.  

The cost of doing business is nearly always passed on to the consumer in the form of higher prices, but these increases are never spelled out – they just happen.  Now, with the surcharge explained, maybe it will open some eyes.  People DO understand their pocketbooks!  And this IS the cost of that free healthcare people voted for!


  1. I'd be willing to bet that more businesses will be breaking down their costs, to show how more of an impact Obamacare will be on their customers, so they all get the idea that this is what the left has done to their wallets.

  2. I would like for every business that has to raise prices because of Obamacare to SHOW THAT INCREASE as a line item on each and every receipt:
