John Metz, a restaurant owner and executive in West Palm Beach, Fla., says he plans to charge his customers a five-percent surcharge and decrease his employees’ hours to offset the costs of Obamacare on his businesses.
“If I leave the prices the same, but, say on the menu that there is a five-percent surcharge for Obamacare, customers have two choices. They can either pay it, and tip 15 or 20 percent, or if they really feel so inclined, they can reduce the amount of tip they give to the server, who is the primary beneficiary of Obamacare,” Metz told The Huffington Post.
“Although it may sound terrible that I’m doing this, it’s the only alternative. I’ve got to pass the cost on to the consumer,” he added” Read more: here
Ever wonder why government implemented payroll deductions? You don’t miss those few extra dollars every pay check, but if we all had to write that check to the government every other week, month or year — we’d more clearly see, understand and miss OUR money. Which is the way it should be. . . and the reason it’s not.
I think John Metz has a brilliant idea. Whether a restaurant, dry cleaners, yard service, coffee shop or attorney’s office, put the extra dollar amount ON the bill for people to see. Those who voted for Obama, should visibly see the extra cost they’ll be paying for Obama’s spending addition of “OPM” (“other peoples money”).
Many of the (pathetically stupid and ignorant) Obamabots seriously didn’t believe they’d be effected with BO’s tax scheme. They should be forced to see that they will be directly effected when they buy that pizza and beer…. and pay their electric bill.
