    Well the "insurance exchanges" I'm sure will make things affordable.

    You've made it! You won! America has been good to you!

    But you're pissed off that your serf employees' healthcare will cost 14 cents a pizza?

    Guess how many people are going to stop buying pizza over 14 cents.

    None.

    That guy deserves so much scorn and ridicule.

    Papa Johns, Domino's and Pizza Hut should be boycotted, but not for anything political. They should be boycotted for mediocre pizza.

    If I had to choose, I'd pick Pizza Hut, but I can think of at least 4 local places that I would go to before any of those.

    Ditto.

    Chain pizza is pretty awful.

    Papa Johns is rubbery and gross. Pizza Hut is mostly grease. Domino's is kind of bland and unmemorable.

    If you're a transplanted New Yorker, your best bet is to find a local joint owned by other transplanted New Yorkers who happen to be pizza aficionados. Those guys know their trade.

    We ordered Papa Johns once when we lived in Florida.

    It was ghastly.

    We then ordered Pizza Hut the next time we craved pizza.

    We then got food poisoning.

    After that, we just bought the ingredients and baked our own.

    Re: 25 hours will be the new "full time"..

    When I worked at Lick's back in 2003-04, they did the same thing. It's so that they could pay me $6.80 an hour and not $7.15 an hour like the full timers get.

    This isn't some new invention brought on by pissed off companies.

    They were probably already doing it.

    Good. Then the better of those employees will now be available to work for good companies like mine that pay health coverage and always have.

    Of course we do. What do you suppose we should do? Invalidate the election and put Romney in just so these pussies can reap their profits? **** that. Take 'em down.

    Do you care about the poor? Of course you don't. So STFU.

    Good...let them ALL go under...survival of the fittest and all.

    Maybe then people will start supporting the backbone of the country: Small businesses. Preferably local ones.
