Even if these numbers that you pulled out of your ass were true, which they arent, the business plan accounts for those costs, so as soon as obama care mandated more costs, guess what, up go the prices, these guys are just being honest about it, I dont get what all the outrage is about. It would seem that just like a few of us have been saying all along, you raise taxes on business the costs get passed along to the customer, I cant tell you how shocked I am.
Id bet alot of guys will just add 10 cents or 20 cents to every single item and not mention it, but Id bet most are just going to cut everybodys hours back to just under 30, so now these people likely making minimum wage not only dont get a full forty hour paycheque, they still dont have health benis. The best of intentions not properly thought out achieve terrible results.
