Wealth-protector Mitt Romney promises to remove "uncertainty" for the Job Creators, if elected.  How?

If elected, on "Day One" Romney promises to "Repeal Obamacare" ... so Businesses will be able to "hire again" ... cheaply.

Mitt Romney Responds to Supreme Court Healthcare Ruling

Published on Jun 28, 2012 by IBTimesTV

Romney stated, "As you might imagine, I disagree with the Supreme Court's decision and I agree with the dissent. What the court did not do on the last day in session, I will do on my first day if elected President of the United States and that is I will act to repeal Obamacare."

Romney said the law was too expensive and represented too large a role for the federal government.

He also added that "Obamacare adds trillions to our deficits and to our national debt, and pushes those obligations on to coming generations. Obamacare also means that for up to 20 million Americans, they will lose the insurance they currently have, the insurance that they like and they want to keep. Obamacare is a job-killer. Businesses across the country have been asked what the impact is of Obamacare. Three-quarters of those surveyed by the Chamber of Commerce said Obamacare makes it less likely for them to hire people. And perhaps most troubling of all, Obamacare puts the federal government between you and your doctor."

Well there you go.  Those nervous Job Creators have finally found their champion of certainty. What a relief, especially since Mitt's so above-board, with all his own business dealings, eh?

How much will "Businesses across the country save" if Mitt gets his way -- and gets to repeal Obamacare someday?

It must be millions and millions in cost savings, right?  It must be a make-or-break issue for so many struggling Businesses, eh?

Well not exactly.

Papa John's CEO Says 'Obamacare' Will Up Pizza Price

by Amy Bingham, -- August 9, 2012

The CEO and founder of Papa John's pizza wants investors to know that when the president's health care law takes effect, the price of pizza is going up with it.

According to "Papa" John Schnatter, the cost of providing health insurance for all of his pizza chain's uninsured, full-time employees comes out to about 14 cents on a large pizza. That's less than adding an extra topping and a third the price of an extra pepperoncini. If you want that piping hot pie delivered, the $2 delivery fee will cost you 14 times as much as that health insurance price hike.

If wealth-protector Mitt Romney gets his way -- and gets to take away Health Care from average working Americans, and turns us back to the cost-cutting forces of the unchecked Insurance Market again

-- Well, Papa John will save an extra 14 cents on each large Pizza they sell!

Whew! No wonder they refuse to hire. With such thin-margins like that, it's a wonder they can afford to pay a single tax or business fee at all.

Shaking in their 'Papa John' boots, all those Job Creators must be ... at least until Mitt the Repealer can save them from this insurmountable 14-cent burden.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
