    By Ron Meyer, Young America's Foundation Spokesman

    I ate Chick-fil-A today for lunch, and I'm ordering Papa John's tonight for dinner.

    If anymore companies use their free speech to oppose the Obama administration's proposals, I'm going to look like the Pillsbury Doughboy.

    Today, Politico reported that Papa John's CEO and founder John Schnatter opposes ObamaCare because it will cost his company "11 to 14 cents per pizza, or 15 to 20 cents per order from a corporate basis," more to make a pizza--a cost which will be passed to the consumer with higher pizza prices. 

    Schnatter said, "We're not supportive of Obamacare, like most businesses in our industry," and continued, "If Obamacare is in fact not repealed, we will find tactics to shallow out any Obamacare costs and core strategies to pass that cost onto consumers in order to protect our shareholders best interests."

    Pizza businesses aren't alone. Corporations across the spectrum--including colleges--have said they will have to raise prices to facilitate ObamaCare. Higher prices mean unhappy customers, higher costs, and less jobs. 

    America needs to stand with and support businesses who are brave enough to speak the truth about these costs. 

    I'm eating tonight at Papa John's. Are you?

    • I agree with Mr. Schnatter's quote, "If Obamacare is in fact not repealed, we will find tactics to shallow out any Obamacare costs and core strategies to pass that cost onto consumers in order to protect our shareholders best interests.", because this is what any good company would do. I as a consumer understand that increase costs lead to higher priced products. Obamacare WILL make all of us poorer if it is not repealed!

    • I think we need to get a list together of all the companies that are comming out against Obamacare and then give that list to every GOP or Tea party candidate that wants it for their web site. Let the American people see these companies that hate it and allow the American people to cast an early vote with their wallet. Show the current president how wrong both he and the supreme court are.

    • I don't think any citizen, and pralbboy most legislators, really understands this bill that was voted into law last year. We need clear, concise reporting on what can be changed to correct the damage that is yet to be done.
