Denny’s to charge 5% ‘Obamacare surcharge’ and cut employee hours to deal with cost of legislation. Next up? How much would you bet many of the customers deduct 5% off the tip because all of a sudden it won’t be other people’s money paying for Obamacare?

So, those of us who work have to pay for our own insurance, and the obamacare of those who wont work, and now the obamacare of those who do work everywhere we eat, shop, get medical care, etc…???

Denny;s has always offered insurance to its employees. Crappy expensive insurance, but insurance. So they are just hopping on the Obama bandwagon as an excuse to charge more for their nasty food.

Pewp is hitting the Obamacare fan. Those affected by this probably voted for assclowndickboy, twice. Enjoy the results of your vote, you uninformed dipshits. Sadly, they’ll believe it’s Denny’s fault it’s happening to them because CNNABCNBCMSNBC will tell them so.

Just another evil greedy racist, this Denny fellow will not get away with this for long. When buroq gets wind of this mistreatment he will order that it is illegal to fire people or cut their hours merely because there is no profit. Atlas will shrug.

Look at the bright side people. Since all these restaurant franchises and c-stores will have to cut employee hours they will be forced to hire more employees!

Hooray for the Annoited One! He has solved the unemployment problem in one stroke of his mighty pen! A nation of part time workers is a good thing because the unemployment numbers will look so much better!

I have an island called French Frigate Shoals I’ll sell, cheap, to anyone that believes this bullshit.

And while the former middle class people that used to eat at Denny’s can no longer afford to eat out much at all, all those formerly rich people will not be able to afford the ritzy joints they used to, so they will become the new clientele for this Denny’s outfit, right? Because everything has been planned and everything in the plan cannot fail, just like combat plans. Its just a little -+=*shift*=+- to the left, not like real Marxism…

One business owner being honest, and I bet he gets audited on top (or because of) it.

Bunch of armchair tycoons at the Mail griping about it. I gave ‘em my usual dose of “Then go out and start your own Denny’s, and show how to do it the right way!”

Interesting… food costs will go up, less hours for employees, but they cannot hire more because of the limitations on Obamacare. So, I have to pay more and the servers will be looking for a higher tip percentage or they will add tips on bills already (like Europe does). We are not going to win when a Progressive is in power.
