It has been one week since the reelection of Barack Obama and the reality of Obamacare’s permanence in the American landscape is beginning to set in for many business owners.
Papa John’s founder and CEO, John Schnatter made headlines last week along with a slew of other companies when he announced some changes that would likely occur as Obamacare continues to be implemented. Schnatter commented that many of his company’s franchise owners will have to cut employees’ hours in order to avoid falling under Obamacare’s coverage requirements, and stay fiscally sound.
“That’s probably what’s going to happen,” he said according to NaplesNews.com. “It’s common sense. That’s what I call lose-lose.”
Schnatter’s comments have outraged many of Obama’s supporters on the left who are now calling for a boycott of the pizza giant, and attacks on Twitter and elsewhere:
This attempt at a boycott is is overwhelmingly ironic for two separate reasons.
First, recall back to the Rush Limbaugh-Sandra Fluke controversy when advertisers were pulling their money from the program in response to the left’s astroturfed secondary boycott that attempted, and failed, to get Limbaugh off the air.
