Much like it famously failed to do with Chick fil-A, the left now threatens to boycott Papa John's and Applebee's because those two companies are considering either layoffs or a hiring freeze due to the heavy new costs imposed upon businesses by Obamacare.
Because the left knows nothing about economics, their anger is misdirected: When the cost of running a business increases significantly -- and under Obamacare it does -- then either the company raises its prices, which makes it less competitive and more likely to fail, thereby costing allits employees their jobs, or else it has to cut operating costs significantly in order to make up for the heavy new health care expenses Obamacare imposes.
Between those two options, cutting costs is the better choice because it keeps the company in business and saves the most jobs.
What Papa John's and Applebee's are doing is exactly right. What Obama is doing is not -- not if creating jobs and lowering unemployment matter to you.
Obamacare or more jobs? Pick one.
You cannot have both. Not even the Democratic messiah can change the laws of economics.
