greenbasterd-"YOU can't afford the extra 14 cents per pizza"

Actually, I can. And if the pizza's good enough, I'll pay it.

I have no idea if Papa Johns pizza is worth it, or not, as I've never tried it. (I'd much rather have the Chicken White Pizza with onions from the Picklefish. Sure, it's a $27 pizza and it costs me $8 bucks in gas to drive accross town to get it, but it's worth is.)

The point is, at some point some people will stop purchasing the pizza over a few cents. Some people that will stop for a $7.99 pizza will see '$8.13' and go elsewhere.

So a few cents will hurt his sales. To what degree remains to be seen.

Isn't he a franchisor? Really they would absorb the costs associated with this...

kingdomCome-"his account is filled with funds appropriated (legitimately I presume) from those of the company"

Actually, HE pays THE WORKERS...not the other way around.

kingdomCome-"and who prepares the food/service?"

HE paid for/developed the food, the recipes, the infrastructure, the raw materials, the advertising, the franchising, etc.

What did the workers do? They built a pizza out of dough, tomato sauce, cheese, sausage and all that HE paid for.

Not exactly a 'skill' now, is it?

The EMPLOYEES don't pay him, he pays them.

@McGovern: Yes, like I said, it's not about making a statement, it's simply about paying what I normally pay.

It becomes your problem when all the delivery drivers say hey lets lace this cheap f**ks pizza with snots and pubes.

But if I'm only removing 16 cents from his tip, how was he to know that I was going to pay 16 cents more? I generally tip at least $4 to the driver, so if he got $3.84 that would be the difference between normal pizza and pubes?

@trutenrman...don't believe I have to point this out to you, but yes...his financials are separated from the company, but his account is filled with funds appropriated (legitimately I presume) from those of the company...maybe if he took a little less each year there'd be enough left in the company to pay for healthcare...

@megrendel...and why do his customers go back? because they like the food/service...and who prepares the food/service?
...like talking to a 5 year old

It's unwise to treat those who handle your food like dirt.

The liberals and the complacent middle decided to vote for a guy that said he was going to stick it to rich folks. Did you really think rich folks were just going to bend over & take it? That's not how they became rich in the first place. No, they'll make their money one way or the other.

It's just like my local politics. A school levy passed that charges a $60k home owner an extra $200 each year in property taxes. Who voted for it? The "underprivileged" folks who live in metro housing who don't pay property tax. The upper-lower and middle class gets screwed out of this, not the rich.

The world needs ditch diggers. Make the welfare recipients work for their gov't check, like they did in the New Deal, and the gov't can pay for their health care. Also, the constitution needs to be amended so that the Congress gets the exact same retirement and health care that their constituents get, not the platinum system they currently have.

FoolsPrussia-"His employees are why he enjoys his own health care and overall high standard of living."

Incorrect. His CUSTOMERS are why he enjoys his own health care and overall high standard of living, and also why his employees have jobs.

CreamK-"No word about actually caring about ANYONE but yourselves."

It's a free country (so far). Caring for others is a choice, not a requirement. The fact that you may be rich, poor, healthy, sickly, effects very few people outside of a very small circle.

Your existance is insignificant to the effect of 99.9999999999999999999999999999% of the world's population.

I don't give a rip what he owns, in my world we here in America all have "equal opportunity"! If you're so jelly then get off your ass and do some real damn work and get your own damn big house. It's an abomination that government should step in and force a private owner to redistribute his wealth as THEY see fit, not him (or her). That's the whatever brand of socialism you want to call it that takes away freedom. You should not decide what profits for him are acceptable or not. To those people I say "screw you"! No wonder people sign petitions to secede. I want no part of your world and clearly you do not agree with my values. Let's just divide this thing up and you lefties can have your lefty whatever world and I'll keep my freedom thank you very much.

I'm with patchouly with this one. Health care is not luxury, it's basic cornerstones of civilized society. Costs of nationalized healthcare is much cheaper and it's humane, civilized and morally right. Preventing some (the poor ) to not have the same basic health services you are hurting humanbeings ffs. That doesn't appear on the texts of privatized health care supporters, all they write about is MONEY! There not a word of taking care of thy neighbours.. Why the hell christians are against it and atheists seemed to support it?

What the hell is wrong with you people? No word about actually caring about ANYONE but yourselves.. "they should go to work and.." but what if that cancer hits you when your down, between jobs? It's been calculated that providing housing to all homeless people will actually decrease costs, not raise them. People living indoors tend to use drugs less, drink less, have less sickness, have better mental health, security, comfort and self esteem..

LOL! ya the driver talks to Papa John all the time!

I fail to see how that's my problem.

You still don't seem to grasp how it works.

No, I understand quite well. Papa John gets butthurt, Papa John raises prices. I don't want to pay it, so I subtract it from the tip and I end up paying exactly what I used to. It's not about making a statement or sticking it to Papa, it's about paying what I used to pay, nothing more, nothing less. I can do whatever I want with my money, I would have thought you right-wingers would know that.

Health care is like car insurance. They will pay out at some point. They need to have people paying in so that they can pay out. As less and less company's offer health insurance, the cost goes up. The more people that use the ER for a primary care Dr. and not pay the more that costs. Now they pass that cost on to the insurance company and they to you. That's why you can't afford it. You will use the system "If you get hurt, go to the hospital, they are obligated to treat you, insurance or not" EVERYBODY WORKS. EVERYBODY PAYS. EVERYBODY GETS IT.

Sorry...I should have said "Health care, **FOR US IN CANADA**, is like garbage collection or mail delivery".
