And yes, I realize that headline is 10 words too long.
Obamacare opponents have declared Friday “Papa John’s Appreciation Day,” supporting the pizza chain’s announcement that the president’s health care law will result in higher costs and force the company to increase consumer costs and cut employee hours.
“Papa Johns has been targeted by the left for a boycott, for simply articulating that ObamaCare would hurt profits and force cutbacks in employee hours,” the movement’s Facebook group, organized by the organization Rebooting America, reads. “Stand up to this nonsensical and illogical action and support Papa Johns this Friday!”
If this is anything like the Chick-fil-A buycott, and you want Papa John’s for dinner, you’d better get your order in now.
I’ve never been a big fan of their pizza, but I am a fan of free enterprise and free speech. If you’re not, then by all means, boycott away. If you think business owners should be intimidated from stating obvious truths about the real costs of Obamacare, boycott to your withered heart’s content.
Did you know Papa John’s has a free iPhone app? Pretty sweet.
