ObamaCare may bring health insurance to the masses, but it will also bring them higher Papa John's pizza prices, Politico reports. In a conference call last week, CEO John Schnatter—a Mitt Romney supporter—revealed that should the Affordable Care Act go into effect in 2014 as scheduled, it will drive up the company's health-care costs ... which Papa John's will pass right along to its customers. The damage? An estimated "11 to 14 cents per pizza, or 15 to 20 cents per order."
"If ObamaCare is in fact not repealed, we will find tactics to ... pass that cost onto consumers in order to protect our shareholders' best interests," explained Schnatter. Papa John's is the nation's third-largest pizza takeout and delivery chain, the Huffington Post notes, and the health care law will require it to insure more of its 16,500 employees or pay a fine.
