  •  Just imagine the great publicity (8+ / 0-)

    that John Schnatter could have generated by praising Obamacare rather than vilifying it: [Note: not a genuine quote.]

    Papa John's pizza is delighted with the ACA! Now we will be able to cover all our employees without incurring a competitive disadvantage, and the real cost for doing so is a mere nickel a pizza. This is a drop in the bucket when compared to all the other taxes, direct and indirect, that our business is subject to. It's just part of being good corporate citizens.

    Even so, I pledge to our customers that we will absorb this minor increase in costs and still deliver the best pizza in the country.

    What value would this announcement have in the marketplace? If Obamacare is the lemon that Schnatter thinks it is, why not make lemonade with it?
