Title: Papa's John Pizza Exposed

Papa John's Obamacare Costs Are Far Less Than Price Of Free Pizza Giveaway

News flash to Papa Johnís CEO John Schnatter: Obamacare isnít the only thing costing your business money.

The pizza chain head has made his views on the Affordable Care Act clear in recent months, claiming the new health care law will cost his business about $5 to $8 million per year. To compensate Schnatter's said he will likely raise pizza prices and cut back some workersí hours so he doesnít have to insure them.

Caleb Melby of Forbes has graciously done the math on Obamacareís cost to Papa Johnís and according to his analysis, to cover the cost of Obamacare, the pizza chain would have to raise prices by 3.4 to 4.6 cents per pie -- way less than the 11 to 14 cents Schnatter claims he needs.

And there are other changes the chain could make to save some money, Melby notes, like not giving away 2 million pizzas for free at a cost of between $24 and $32 million to the company, for example.

The same Papa John that gave 250,000 to someone just to get his Camaro back? The same guy that sold off his Camaro to keep his business afloat? The same guy that gave some random people 25k just for helping find it?

(http://cache.gawkerassets.com/assets/images/12/2011/11/medium_39b998aad92bf0699a58705602f9d67c.jpg)

How Jalopnik Reunited Papa John With His Camaro
As we first reported yesterday, pizza magnate Papa John Schnatter has been reunited with his Camaro. This is the story of how Jalopnik made it happen and helped someone get $250,000.

The story really begins in 1983, when Papa John Schnatter's father was on the verge of closing his tavern because of a bankruptcy. Faced with few choices, Papa John sold the only asset he had to his name: A Bumblebee-striped black-and-gold 1971Ĺ Chevy Camaro Z28.

        
View the gallery
Click on the gallery to walk through where the Z28 traveled over the years.
With the $2,800 he received for the Camaro he was able to save the family business and launch Papa John's, a business that now numbers at more than 3,000 pizzerias in 26 countries with a market value of three-quarters of a billion dollars. He had a lot, but Papa John still missed that Camaro. So Schnatter started looking for it.

"For 26 years I wanted the car back," said Schnatter. "[A friend] looked for that car for most of the 1990s and it surprised me when we couldn't find it." They even hired an ex-FBI agent to search for the car, turning up nothing.

Schnatter even went so far as to have a replica of the original 1971Ĺ Camaro Z28 built to emulate the original, though with an upgraded sound system and A/C. Still, Schnatter was unsatisfied and hit the road in search of the car, first offering up a $25,000 reward, then upping the ante to $250,000 when the first sum failed to find the car. Even though many cars of the era have been sent to the crusher, he said he "never gave up hope, I never ever give up on anything. For some reason I didn't think anyone smashed it up."

When Papa John stopped off in Houston in search of the car he took me for a drive. All Schnatter could talk about was that original car, telling me:

"It had the split-bumper, sunroof, BF Goodrich tires with steel wheels, I swapped out the rear end with a Positrac differential - and now the speedometer reads 10 MPH over the actual speed. It had a velvet interior, unlike the vinyl one in this car, it didn't have A/C, and the ash tray in back is falling off."

These were helpful clues, but there was something else that struck us. He told the tale of watching the car drive away or, rather, about being unable to because he was so sad.

And this is where Jalopnik readers come in. After first hearing about the search on television, the Slones of Indiana found our original story and the details sounded familiar so they reached out to us on our Facebook page where our Commenter admin Al Navarro noticed it.

Their story of a young man selling his car, unable to watch it go, instantly struck me as familiar to what John himself had told me in the car. After confirming some details it was clear this was the car so we contacted Papa John's people and let them know.

Sadly for the Slones, they'd sold the car to Jeff Robinson of Flatwoods, Kentucky. Fortunately for them, John has extended an offer of a finder's fee of $25,000 to the family for helping out with the tip. And fortunately for everyone, Jeff considered building a more tame street version of his Z28 so he kept many of the original parts, which helped them identify the car.

So how did the car go so long without being found? There are two reasons. First, the original sale occurred just across the border in Indiana, where there was no electronic record kept of sales transactions at the time. Second, the car was not a 1972 as remembered by John, but actually a 1971Ĺ, which is why Robinson didn't believe the car was the right one at first.

And what condition was the car in when John eventually drove out to Flatwoods to pick it up yesterday? Fantastic condition. Jeff had seriously upgraded the motor for drag racing and it was now putting out 825 HP.

According to Robinson it's now "Probably the fastest pizza delivery car in the world, it runs a 9.55 quarter-mile at 141 MPH."



Despite the added power, newer hood and upgraded tires, the Schnatter family loves the car.

"Now there's a big old smile on my face, I like the car, I like the way it drives, it's fast," exclaimed Schnatter. "My wife's a redneck and she loves a muscle car. On one hand I want to put it back the way it was, and on the other hand i like the way he put it back together."

Though he's sad to part with it, Jeff Robinson made out okay.

"Jeff loved the car and he knows I'm going to take car of it and it'll take a special place in the hearts of the people at Papa John's," said John, adding "he was kind enough to sell it for $250,000."

Robinson isn't sure whether or not he'll build another Z28 of that era or try for something else. Either way, Papa John has promised to deliver the motor back if he decides to restore it to stock condition.

In the end, the story of a car that launched a global pizza empire has a happy ending not only for the young enthusiast who bravely parted with his dream car to pursue a different dream, but for another car enthusiast who was lucky enough to treat the car well. And really, isn't that what Jalopnik is all about?

Bingo! Big fat giant corporations always want more to stabilize themselves and continue to dominate the market. To avoid any type of "bad" publicity, these corporations will find any scapegoat to make themselves look like the "good guy" in the public's view. Think about it, why does he only mention about raising pizza prices, or lay off workers? Why doesn't he talk about all the god damn tax exempts, he has up his sleeve. Why doesn't he talk about how much his net worth is. Why doesn't he talk about about spending hundred of millions for superbowl commercial rather than invest that into his employees? This my friend is greed of business and the ugly side behind the scenes of their operations!

And there are other changes the chain could make to save some money, Melby notes, like not giving away 2 million pizzas for free at a cost of between $24 and $32 million to the company, for example.

The solution sure does sound simple.

If it is indeed that simple, why doesn't Papa John simply increase the price slightly, get healthcare, and reap the positive whirlwind of publicity and goodwill?

Surely his current position is not a good business move (if the article is accurate).

Does anyone suspect there might be more to this story?

i think you have nailed the problem with american society. actually, its human nature but when its within a framework that facilitates it, its a problem.

most countries have it set aside in taxes. take 14c an hour less but sure up your health coverage..hmmm..tough decision..

14 cents is a huge deal and can psychologically affect people from ordering.

If he normally sells a Pizza for $10.99, people think, oh 10 bucks, they forget about the .99 as being a buck, but add 14 cents and it's $11.13. people will be like, 11 bucks????? fuck that, dominos has it for 10 bucks, plus 13 is bad luck, I ain't getting no bad luck trots from eating that.

Agreed. Much more than what were told. Not to mention he's competing with Dominoes and Pizza Hut, who all have deals within the same price range. If he raises prices it may lead to a sharp decline in customers going for their "cheaper" competitors.

yeah, and its ironic you are one of them.

lets explore it- supposing it has any cred at all.

14c from a 10.99 pizza. thats 1%. (ignoring the giveaways for now).

and 1% of a few million dollars?...the guy wouldnt even notice it. However having secure healthcare is a big deal for the non millionaires.

extrend it the other way..papa john gets really sick and loses his millions in medical fees..but survives.. now what?..if he'd put that 14c aside then he'd still have his millions (less 1%) AND survive.

this really is a dumb debate. the risk v benefit is obvious.

Agreed. Much more than what were told. Not to mention he's competing with Dominoes and Pizza Hut, who all have deals within the same price range. If he raises prices it may lead to a sharp decline in customers going for their "cheaper" competitors.

I'm sure Domino's and Pizza hut are in the same boat with their employees, just they aren't stupid enough to whine about it publicly like this asshole

The fact this is a story in the first place is because his competition are throwing some dirt his way.

but the story about free pizza. Are they that fucking dumb?  he isn't losing a single penny on that give away.  It is marketing money that comes out of the marketing budget.

Damn right, the business only exists because we as a country are too lazy to provide ourselves dinner....or even drive to get it, haha.

Remember back in the 80s when Dominos went from Chevettes as company owned delivery vehicles to private vehicles? That was due to the cost to insure. The government will make things less efficient.

And another issue....I've got lots of musician friends that still deliver pizza. Try insuring that lot for a reasonable rate.....wow.

Great post, wiggs. While I support his right to make as much profit as possible even at the expense of others, that doesn't mean he isn't a scumbag as a human. That being said, there are plenty of poor people who are equally miserable humans who made choices that put them in the predicament they are in. In the end, not sure one side is more morally culpbable than the other.

Why is it his problem to insure anyone?  They are all hourly employees.  I am pretty sure that everyone that works at Papa Johns headquarters get insurance.  Remember that his stores are franchises.  it is the franchise owners issue with giving insurance, not him.

The IT team, the execs, the staff at the shiny PJ's building do get insured.

You must live on fantasy island. "Cheating on taxes" theres a new one..lmao.   If any of u retard repubs would look into it, youll see that the company can recieve tax subsidies to pay for it....you know like the OIL companies do!!
Then on top of that it is a deduction for the business!!!  which lowers its taxes due every quarter.

Then on top of that it keeps millions out of the E.R and sticking taxpayers with the bill.

You dumbasses complain about leeches and then when they start personal responsibilty buy getting insurance...you bitches complain about that too.

I can't stop laughing reading all these posts of socialists whining about "poor employees" getting "no insurance".

If you don't like something about your job - insurance, salary, whatever - change it. You can't because you're uneducated dumb fuck? Well sir, it's your fucking problem.

It's NONE of your business what he does with HIS money. It's HIS money, not yours. He's a fucking businessman, not some monk from charity. If you envy him then go open your own company. Oh shit, he lives in a fucking castle... So what? Take it from him because he's got too much?

It's your life and it's up to YOU what you will do with it. You're the only person who is responsible for it. If you expect Papa John or anyone to pay for your health insurance then you're a fucking idiot.

In capitalism, you get as much as you deserve according to free market. Therefore everyone is MOTIVATED to do more or they simply become poor and die because of their poverty. This way we create stronger society with better gene pool. Natural selection at its best. Communism/socialism creates society of dumb, lazy and whiny bitches like you who think they can get everything for free.

Just take a look at what 50 years of communism did to Poland.

Is business required to provide health insurance?   NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Obamacare is a personal mandate.....do you understand the difference between personal and business???    Exchanges are being setup to increase competitivness on the market which will drive down prices so regular people can afford a policy.........Good gawd.

Please, this is exactly what's going.to happen regardless if your a.lib or a repub. He claims hewants to grow the economy, if that's the case you let people keep as much as possible so they can spend and put back to the economy. Hell no people don't want to pay more, not and not you. Don't kid yourself. That goes for anyone in this thread trying to argue the point. Do you see what's happening in California???

God forbid he actually absorbs the cost and makes a fraction less money than he does now, and all of his workers have health coverage.

That's why I hate fucking  republicans, they would kill their mother rather than actually LOSE money,no matter how insignificant the sum... it's the ONLY thing that matters, foreign policy, domestic policy, religion, the environment...they could give a flying fuck....Just don't touch my fucking money.

It's all fine and dandy when it's someone else's money. But, wait until YOU get your paycheck bilked for something you don't want. Then, we'll see if you simply "shut the f(@# up and pay the money".

You made my point you dumb shit... It's his choice to do business here... It's my choice to buy his Shit pizza or not... Not btw. It's his choice to offer benefits or not, and workers choice to work there or not. It's not a choice to be forced to give benefits for making fucking pizza. But it will be his choice to move his company elsewhere and harm the economy even more. It's unreal how fucking dumb people are and can't see the difference between choice and being forced to do something.

Why do think any company would choose to leave the US? Because at some point all this shit does make it more profitable to business elsewhere. I know it's shocking to the libtards...

It's not their money anymore...it's the government's money.  That's where you people lose the plot

and i don't want anyone's money, i have no need for gov't assistance....but not everyone who does is a fucking degenerate loser.

There are plenty of people who had good jobs, until they were shipped to Mexico or India, because corporate America could make more profit that way.

So now some normal blue-collar (or white-collar) dude who was making a good living, who has two kids and a mortgage, has to take two shit jobs to barely make ends meet, because he can't just "go back to school and get a new skill set" because he has a family to support.

So he does what he has to do for his family...and he gets trapped in a fucked up situation which would require a herculean effort, (and financial assistance) to extract himself from. There are thousands of college grads working in factories right now..and the kicker is if you actually TRY and dig yourself out of the hole...They cut your assistance, because you "make too much money". 1300 dollars a month is "too much money" according to the gov't....LOLOL

and the "trickle down" plays out like this.....yes there ARE two shit jobs available for him to work, and have a crappy life, because the rich fucks need their car washed and their hedges trimmed...and the money they are spending on these services, is money that USED to go into this guys pocket before they took his job away and gave it to someone in Mexico for a fraction of the salary.  they are just pocketing the difference, and he doesn't make nearly what he used to.

It's a beautiful symmetry, if you are the guy on top..if you are on the shit end, you aren't loving it so much though, You have had your livelihood taken away for no good reason.

he used to be IN , now he's out...because someone higher up the corporate ladder was crunching numbers and said.."Oh Biff, Winston.....I've created these 14 spreadsheets demonstrating how we can generate 1.3 % more profit if we dissolve this branch and outsource those services overseas...everyone is doing it, we don't want to fall behind the curve. This is a game-changer gentlemen...We need to think outside the box, be pro-active and hit the ground running. It's mission- critical that we wrap our heads around this paradigm shift and embrace this initiative and achieve synergy, it's a win-win with a significant ROI " .

Valid question... Everyone said, "Hey... let's make some extra bucks and lay some people off to send their jobs overseas to do it."

So if they are now having to pay a little more to keep their profits up, then I guess that's just the way it works sometimes.

What a sad, touching story... Still, you don't get a point.

Problem is, many people see having family or kids as their right when it is not - it is a privilege. If you want to be free to choose then you have to be responsible for your decisions. In my case, I have to take into equation fact that in 10 years time I may not be as smart as I am right now and if somehow my career goes to shit without savings I may end up selling fries in McDonalds. I am well aware that after many years of focusing on just small area and being specialist in something that only one company really needs you won't be likely to get another job anywhere. You have to take things like that into the account. If you want stability then choose a job that gives you high propability of employment later in the future regardless of global or local crisis - like MD doctor or lawyer.

Family is nothing different than buying new car, or new house. If you know that you can't afford it, don't buy it. It is nothing more than a product intended to make you happy. If poor understood this any country would prosper so much better. More kids from higher circles means better gene pool. Socialists seem to deny tough reality of this world. Life is not a fucking disney land. It is survival of the fittest, it always was and always will be. Denial of the reality won't make it any different.

Modern world is in so much denial about reality that it's pretty hillarious actually. Let's take mating as an example. If a girl dates a guy just because he is rich and powerful she is considered a whore. Yet when she dates a guy because he is tall or muscular or both then it's OK. When you think about it, it's all the same. The latter criteria are just atavistic - they represent what was required to survive few thousands years ago. Now they are completely irrelevant. This sentiment to the "old reality" is really pathetic. It is not in our "genes" as some may suggest - it is a matter of fashion. Big, fat women used to be considered attractive because people perceived them as strong and likely to survive giving birth. Now it's exactly the opposite.

I said leeches... for every one of the guys you said... who I'm for helping btw... there are 1500 asshats cheering 3 years to sit on thier asses collecting unemployment while we take 14 more cents from some rich guy.

My point was about the gov or libtards thinking they have any say in how this guy spends his money. You used to go to your neighbors for help... now you would tell your neighbor to fuck off cause it would cost you money to help feed them... but it's ok for them to get fed on other people's tax dime.

I'll give you a good example of how things worked in regards to charity over forced charity aka more taxes...

You have ten bucks in your pocket and 500 in your sock...

One guy comes to you asking for money to feed his kids...you will dip into your 500 stash to help the guy out.

One guy sticks a gun in your side and asks for money... you give him the ten bucks in your pocket and say that's all you got.

I'll let you Sherlock Homleys figure out how that equates to our current situation, tax evasion, and leeches.

Yes, allowing the poor to have kids and actually paying them for that like Polish government does - very realistic. Final result is that the poor dumb fucks have 10 kids and country has to pay for them. Because of their malnutrition and lack of proper enviroment they end up just as poor and as dumb as their parents, just 10 dumb fucks instead of two. At the same time smart people who understand reality have 2 to 3 kids.

At the same time we have more and more Arabs who come here just because, for example, Danish government pays them for breathing, eating, having kids, having fucking more kids, everything.

The end result is that one Danish city has cancelled Xmass this year because muslims got majority in its local board. Danish people are too dumb to protest or do anything about that.

If more people see what I wrote as "unrealistic pipe dream" then I see "great" future for all of us  ;D

I am in fact asking that people do some planning before taking any action that may cost them money. I'm really glad that someone gets it tho.

Yes, allowing the poor to have kids and actually paying them for that like Polish government does - very realistic. Final result is that the poor dumb fucks have 10 kids and country has to pay for them. Because of their malnutrition and lack of proper enviroment they end up just as poor and as dumb as their parents, just 10 dumb fucks instead of two. At the same time smart people who understand reality have 2 to 3 kids.

At the same time we have more and more Arabs who come here just because, for example, Danish government pays them for breathing, eating, having kids, having fucking more kids, everything.

The end result is that one Danish city has cancelled Xmass this year because muslims got majority in its local board. Danish people are too dumb to protest or do anything about that.


If more people see what I wrote as "unrealistic pipe dream" then I see "great" future for all of us  ;D

Asshats - another nail in the coffin.

Yes, lets everyone surrender what we've earned to the government because they know best. lol. If "Obamacare" was so great then why are the originators of the program exempt?

Like I said, I saw this shit coming in 07' when this asshole was campaigning. When he was finally "elected" we Obama proofed our business. He can fuck himself. Truthfully, all of the lies from him and his administration and his cohorts will come to a head in his second term, and if the fucking media and repubs who sat of their asses and did nothing everytime he pulled his shit would just do something, he can be exposed and ran out of office. Fucker is an accessory to murder, people turn the other cheek and he get's elected by fraud. He's a joke not to be taken seriously.

Published: Nov. 14, 2012 at 7:50 PM

NEW YORK, Nov. 14 (UPI) -- The head of Papa John's says it would cost 10-14 cents a pizza to buy health insurance for the chain's U.S. workers but a Forbes study says it would be 5 cents.

Papa John's International Chief Executive Officer John Schnatter -- a supporter of GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney and opponent of the Affordable Care Act -- said he estimated compliance with the healthcare reform law would cost his company about $5 to 8 million annually.

The company made $1.2 billion in revenue last yer, with total operating expenses of $1.131 billion and a gross profit of $87 million.

Using Schnatter's estimate that healthcare reform would cost his company $5 to 8 million more annually, Forbes magazine said providing healthcare translated into a .4 percent to .7 percent increase in the price of a pizza.

"For the sake of argument, let's say that Papa John's sells exactly half medium/half large specialty pizzas. Averaging the ranges for both sizes, then averaging that product yields a .86 percent price increase -- less than 1 percent -- well outside the range of what Schnatter said health insurance would cost," Forbes magazine said. "So how much would prices go up, under these 50/50 conditions of large and medium pizzas if they were to fairly reflect the increased cost of doing business onset by Obamacare? Roughly 3.4 to 4.6 cents a pie," about one-third of Schnatter's estimate, Forbes said.

Schnatter owns 6,094,409 shares, or nearly one fourth of Papa John's shares as part of a family limited partnership and had a compensation package last year of $2,745,219, the annual report said.

Speaking to students at Edison State College in Napier County, Fla., last week, Schnatter said the cost of compliance might force Papa John's to cut back on employees hours.

An Applebee's restaurant franchisee, Zane Tankel, told Fox Business Network he would freeze hiring and may cut employees' hours because of the cost of complying with the law, Advertising Age reported.

Darden Restaurants, which owns restaurant chains including Olive Garden and Red Lobster, said last month it was putting more employees on a part-time schedule in some states to control healthcare-related costs.

I`d be more than willing pay a nickel more for his shit pizza , knowing that his workers were going to be able to see a doctor when they need it.  This is probably because I have morals and think profit over human suffering is absolutely sickening, especially when its unnecessary as in this case.

Notice how the religious here, the Republicans here, don`t have any of that in their brains.  Their small brains lack all empathy and the amusing thing is, most are bad off themselves and the bubble they live and operate in keeps them sealed from reality.

http://www.forbes.com/sites/calebmelby/2012/11/12/breaking-down-centi-millionaire-papa-john-schnatters-obamacare-math/

The issue: the Affordable Care Act dictates that full-time employees (30 hours or more per week) at companies with more than 50 workers need to be provided health insurance. Schnatter has further claimed that some employers will cut employee hours to avoid providing them with healthcare.

Checking Papa Schnatterís Math

Last year, Papa Johnís International captured $1.218 billion in revenue. Total operating expenses were $1.131 billion. So if Schnatterís math is accurate (Obamacare will cost his company $5-8 million more annually),  then new regulation translates into a .4% to .7% (yes, fractions of a percent) expense increase. Itís difficult to set that ratio against the proposed pie increase, given size and topping differentials, but many of their large specialty pizzas run for $16. Remarkably, a 10-14 cent increase on a $16 pizza falls in a comparable range: .6% to.9%. But the cost transference becomes less equitable if youíre looking at medium pizzas, which run closer to $12, meaning a .8% to 1.15% price increase.

For the sake of argument, letís say that Papa Johnís sells exactly half medium/half large specialty pizzas. Averaging the ranges for both sizes, then averaging that product yields a .86% price increase  ó well outside the range of what Schnatter says Obamacare will cost him.

So how much would prices go up, under these 50/50 conditions, if they were to fairly reflect the increased cost of doing business onset by Obamacare? Roughly 3.4 to 4.6 cents a pie.

In September, the company announced that it would be giving away 2 million free pizzas. That was, of course, a promotion designed to increase brand awareness and to invite consumers to try the brand ó with the ultimate goal of selling more pizzas. Those giveaways canít really be cataloged alongside sales that would have been made otherwise. But just in case youíre curious, that would be the equivalent of $24 million to $32 million in pizza revenue.

Necks In This Game

Standing to lose (or gain) as his company determines how best to operate under new regulations is Papa Schnatter himself, who owns 6,094,409 shares, or nearly one fourth, of Papa Johnís, according to the companyís most recent annual report. 1,268,052 of those shares are held in a family limited partnership and 84,000 shares held in a 501(c)(3). The rest are directly owned. At the $49.44 share price, subtracting those held in a charitable trust, the remaining 6,010,409 shares are worth roughly $297 million. Schnatterís compensation packages for years 2009-11 were $2,319,643, $2,614,516, and $2,745,219 respectively, also according to the annual report. Papa Johnís International has not paid a dividend since 2005.

Also hanging in the balance are the shares of institutional investors FMR (11.6%), BlackRock (6.7%) and JP Morgan Chase (5%). But if these notions of protest materialize, Papa Johnís front line will be populated by the franchise owners who operate many of its 4,000-plus international locations.

Emails sent to Papa Johnís Investor Relations and calls placed to Papa Johnís Public Relations were not immediately returned for comment.

Pay the nickle, 5% whatever you want.  Just don't make me pay for someone else's health insurance, do that enough already with medicare taxes. Have them go get a better job than working at a pizza joint part time if they want it just like the rest of us had to do.  It's not just a nickle at Papa' Johns, it's cost increase at just about any similar business.  Denny's is the newest example http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2233221/Dennys-charge-5-Obamacare-surcharge-cut-employee-hours-deal-cost-legislation.html.  Most employees will have their hours reduced to just under 30 so they won't have to be covered.  I guarantee many other business's will use the same tactic.  Maybe I'm just not compassionate like a good liberal supposedly is, but I don't like paying for other people's stuff any more than I have to nor do I expect anyone to pay for mine.

Some people will never get laid off because with their experience and knowledge they will always get a job, unless world goes to shit. Civil engineers, lawyers, doctors, architects...

If you have what I consider more risky job, like software engineer, you should save your money for your future. You can, especially considering the fact that you earn a lot from an early age as opposed to doctors, lawyers and civil engineers where it takes years.

It really depends and of course, anyone can become jobless and go bankrupt. It's common sense that I'm saying "sure", or "stable" I say "stable with great probability".

The interesting thing to see is who is actually going to see all these newly insured patients. Much of the expansion of insurance comes from an expansion of medicaid. Well, many doctors don't accept medicaid since the reimbursement is so ridiculously low. So the newly "insured" dennys workers aren't gonna have much access to care outside of a county hospital where the wait time for care (which is already long...in some cases weeks) is only gonna get longer. So status quo won't change with regard to healthcare except now we're gonna be paying more for food, peoples hours are going to get cut, and in the end the rich guy is still rich and we all get fucked.

By the way, the reason why people go broke is because they spend too much money. It's that simple.

But yeah, you just HAVE to buy this new iPAD. You HAVE to buy new expensive car so you can show off. Maybe luxury apartment and jewellery.

My friend's mother lives in NY. He worked there at a construction plant. Do you have any idea how much money he was able to save in 10 weeks time?

Truth is, you're used to such high standard of living that you have no idea how to save anymore. Everyone spends more than he earns nowadays for vanity purposes, that's why we're all in such huge shithole and then after we loose job we need that "help" from country. Truth is, anyone from my country who moved to USA and worked there as a fucking plumber or whatever was amazed by how much money he was able to save in short time. And you fucking people whine about "living on the edge of poverty"? Give me a fucking break.

Groink basically yes, 95% can go fuck themselves or move to 5%. If they can't that's their fault anyway. Still, I somehow do not believe that cleaning ladies I know were able to rent a flat, send money home, save a lot of money for future and still live a decent life and somehow Americans go completely "broke" when they loose their jobs.

But to continue, if you got laid off and your medical benefits from your job were cut off as well...Not wishing anything bad, but you got a newborn, she's going to need regular doctor visits. where are you getting the medical coverage from? will you refuse Obamacare?

If your wife has benny's good for you....it's a hypothetical question

So you are lumping me in with the leeches? In the case you said earlier I said the guy should be helped... he's not a leech. Neither am I... I would do what ever I had to until I found more work. Like I said if anyone would deserve the help... the way it was meant to be used... it would be me.

We started off talking about the gov. forcing a business into more expenses. And the leeches cheering about it. Huge difference in both of the scenarios you laid out.

By the way, the reason why people go broke is because they spend too much money. It's that simple.

Friend, 100k$/year, software engineer. Works in a modest flat. No car. Uses public transport. Eats in his company for free. Just do the math how much you can save living like that.

Another guy, 50 years old. Civil Engineer in Germany. Worked in some company, saved a lot of money, created his own. Saved more money. At 40 years old he sold his company, bought land in Poland. He doesn't have to work anymore until his death.

But yeah, you just HAVE to buy this new iPAD. You HAVE to buy new expensive car so you can show off. Maybe luxury apartment and jewellery.

My friend's mother lives in NY. He worked there at a construction plant. Do you have any idea how much money he was able to save in 10 weeks time?

Truth is, you're used to such high standard of living that you have no idea how to save anymore. Everyone spends more than he earns nowadays for vanity purposes, that's why we're all in such huge shithole and then after we loose job we need that "help" from country. Truth is, anyone from my country who moved to USA and worked there as a fucking plumber or whatever was amazed by how much money he was able to save in short time. And you fucking people whine about "living on the edge of poverty"? Give me a fucking break.

Groink basically yes, 95% can go fuck themselves or move to 5%. If they can't that's their fault anyway. Still, I somehow do not believe that cleaning ladies I know were able to rent a flat, send money home, save a lot of money for future and still live a decent life and somehow Americans go completely "broke" when they loose their jobs.

Weird way of viewing the world sir.

I removed extreme examples because they somehow blurred the picture instead of getting to the point.

That's nothing "weird" or new, that's what Friedman among many other's like Ron Paul were saying for many years.

Fair enough, I won't disagree.

and FWIW, I'm not real big on "leeches" myself. i'm just more compassionate for the downtrodden i guess. I can accept the fact that not everyone is destined for greatness, the world needs ditch diggers too, and if it costs the ruling class a pittance so that these folk can go to the damn doctor, It's what we do in a supposedly enlightened society.

That's all i'm saying here.

Published: Nov. 14, 2012 at 7:50 PM

NEW YORK, Nov. 14 (UPI) -- The head of Papa John's says it would cost 10-14 cents a pizza to buy health insurance for the chain's U.S. workers but a Forbes study says it would be 5 cents.

Papa John's International Chief Executive Officer John Schnatter -- a supporter of GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney and opponent of the Affordable Care Act -- said he estimated compliance with the healthcare reform law would cost his company about $5 to 8 million annually.

The company made $1.2 billion in revenue last yer, with total operating expenses of $1.131 billion and a gross profit of $87 million.

Using Schnatter's estimate that healthcare reform would cost his company $5 to 8 million more annually, Forbes magazine said providing healthcare translated into a .4 percent to .7 percent increase in the price of a pizza.

"For the sake of argument, let's say that Papa John's sells exactly half medium/half large specialty pizzas. Averaging the ranges for both sizes, then averaging that product yields a .86 percent price increase -- less than 1 percent -- well outside the range of what Schnatter said health insurance would cost," Forbes magazine said. "So how much would prices go up, under these 50/50 conditions of large and medium pizzas if they were to fairly reflect the increased cost of doing business onset by Obamacare? Roughly 3.4 to 4.6 cents a pie," about one-third of Schnatter's estimate, Forbes said.

Schnatter owns 6,094,409 shares, or nearly one fourth of Papa John's shares as part of a family limited partnership and had a compensation package last year of $2,745,219, the annual report said.

Speaking to students at Edison State College in Napier County, Fla., last week, Schnatter said the cost of compliance might force Papa John's to cut back on employees hours.

An Applebee's restaurant franchisee, Zane Tankel, told Fox Business Network he would freeze hiring and may cut employees' hours because of the cost of complying with the law, Advertising Age reported.

Darden Restaurants, which owns restaurant chains including Olive Garden and Red Lobster, said last month it was putting more employees on a part-time schedule in some states to control healthcare-related costs.

Unless I am misinterpreting this I believe Forbes is just looking at the direct cost to papa johns from Obamas new federal government regulations. However I think Forbes has not taken into account the indirect costs to papa johns, since these new federal regulations basically apply to everyone, any company that Papa John does business with will have to raise their prices for their specific produts. So in this case the company(s) that supply cheese will see their operating costs rise and pass the cost onto papa johns, the people that produce the sauce ingridients for pizza will also have to pass their healthcare increase costs onto Papa Johns and etc. Basically Papa Johns will be affected no only by direct government requirements but also indirectly by all of its supplies and companies that it depends on to get supplies / materials in.

I have tons of compassion for those truly in need... that's where I differ from the knuckle heads... the definition of truly in need.

Coach is a typical American. He bitches about people who have little and are in need. I guarantee you one day Coach will have nothing and will be living off the system too.  Hes a personal trainer acting like hes managing a trust fund. lol

By the way Coach I'm gainfully employed, pay into a private pension and have private as well as public medical to count on.

I also volunteer on local organisations.

What about you?

Do you volunteer anywhere?

I said sit on my ass for 3 years is shameful. I'd start looking for work the next day... the next day.

oversimplification. Most "sick" people with contagious diseases handling food have illnesses that a doctor can't do shit about anyway. (The majority of common, transmissible illnesses are not curable). It's really on them to take the day off. Giving them healthcare is just going to crowd up the ERs more with people who really don't need to see a doctor anyway.

God forbid he actually absorbs the cost and makes a fraction less money than he does now, and all of his workers have health coverage.

That's why I hate fucking  republicans, they would kill their mother rather than actually LOSE money,no matter how insignificant the sum... it's the ONLY thing that matters, foreign policy, domestic policy, religion, the environment...they could give a flying fuck....Just don't touch my fucking money.

People have a fundamentally short term, selfish view.

The market will sort things out over time but the pain of letting the market do that is a lot to bear.

As had been mentioned before, if Papa Johns had the technology, they might employ robots to make & deliver the Pizzas, effectively having a zero employee organisation. To the Papa John guy this is a win-win. The problem is, Papa John would not want everyone else to do the same thing. If everyone did this, had robots doing the work (including the robot manufacturers), then nobody would have a job. This also means that nobody would have any money and nobody would be buying Papa Johns pizzas.

Look at the decimation of the manufacturing industry in the US. Eventually, the factories will come back and some already are. The problem is the pain involved in getting to the point in which they do come back.

This is why a market need some degree of oversight. People/organisations are selfish, the problems they cause are long term with the benefits being short term.

Of course, the issue is who will oversee the market. Neither party in the US has demonstrated the capability. It's just an 8 yearly rotation of snouts at the trough with no-one having any sort of long term vision.

and that's the whole problem to me with this country, corporate greed.

Look at what's been going on, the people at the very top of the food chain, the ivy-league educated bluebloods, the supposed bastions of society, are just stealing fucking money. Enron, the "bailouts" .....these fuckers are doing shit that two-bit con men used to do...just TAKING the fucking money and making no bones about it. and seriously fucking thousands upon thousands of people right up the ass with no lube.

This is precisely what it prevents, the crowding of ER`s.

LOL, you obviously don't know how medical reimbursement works. Try making an appointment with a local private doc when you have medicaid. Ain't gonna happen. Even Medicare patients (which pays a hell of a lot better than medicaid) have a hard time finding docs these days. Through Obamacare, a large percentage of the newly insured poor are going to be shuttled to medicaid which means they go to county hospitals or ridiculously busy academic centers where the wait times are already weeks for appointments and where they are having a hell of a time recruiting non-foreign grads to primary care medicine. Your only chance for care when it takes weeks to get an appointment is the ER. Urgent cares typically do not accept medicaid patients, and even the docs at the academic centers who do have their own clinics do whatever they can to fill their schedule with private patients first since they are still ultimately reimbursed based on the money they bring in.

yes, but waiting a month to see a doc is better than never seeing one at all. and if you have a traumatic injury, you go to the ER like everybody else.

More than likely, he is complaining because he is a Republican.

Similarly, we will have democrat voters whining about Republican policies when they get in after Obama (as it will be their turn).

You and I think similarly when it comes to politics. the most amusing thing is when the sitting president gets blamed for the state of the economy, when those seeds were planted  years ago. like Obama is responsible for the economy he inherited. a 20 year housing bubble built on deregulation from the fucking 80's bursts, and the fallout is his fault...LOLOL.

Remember back in the 80s when Dominos went from Chevettes as company owned delivery vehicles to private vehicles? That was due to the cost to insure. The government will make things less efficient.


How does the price of auto insurance have anything to do with government and efficiency? The auto insurance industry is a private, for profit industry.

The thing I find odd is the people that keep shouting "Communism" in this discussion.

You already have many socialised services in the US. The fire service and the police for instance. Some of healthcare is already socialised.

Yet, some people are claiming that this change is "communism". I know it's tongue in cheek but it is rather indicative of being somewhat brainwashed.

What you have in the US and in fact many countries around the world is a large degree of social conditioning and an associated reluctance to change. Each country has a varying degree of social programmes. People in the US have been conditioned to it being one way. Now it is changing against the way they have been conditioned to believe is right. The end result is an overreaction and these shouts of communism.

This isn't communism. You'll know when that comes because it will be accompanied with a rapid reduction in the population.

What this is, is a change in the existing social policies of the US. People seem to be focused too much on one angle of this argument - the "American Dream" angle. You know - the one where every American is really a temporarily embarrassed millionaire and that everyone can make it if they try. Well they can't. You could be smart, work hard, really try your best and still fail. In fact, failure is the most likely outcome.

Successful people read way too much into what they did and way too little into the fact that luck played a great part in their success.

Next time you go through the "self help" and "biography" section of Barnes and Noble, consider the impact of Survivorship Bias. How many people that tried & failed write books and if they did how many people would be interested in reading them?

And for those of you that have been successful and a reading this post. You really think luck played no part in your success?

God forbid he actually absorbs the cost and makes a fraction less money than he does now, and all of his workers have health coverage.

That's why I hate fucking  republicans, they would kill their mother rather than actually LOSE money,no matter how insignificant the sum... it's the ONLY thing that matters, foreign policy, domestic policy, religion, the environment...they could give a flying fuck....Just don't touch my fucking money.

It is exactly like that. Papa John's is a publicly traded company, they are beholden to their shareholders and noone else.

If the quarterly report shows an 8 million dollar loss due to the healthcare situation, the CEO will take a hit. The board may decide he is weak or not doing a proper job (= not making enough money for the shareholdes). So he's whining because they will have to find ways to cover the loss and if these don't work, he might end up losing his job.

I'm Polish citizen, not American, no American media could brainwash me and trust me, as Polish citizen when I see communism I know it.

Success is all about luck because first and foremost you have to be born in right family, receive proper education from early age and so on. It doesn't change the fact that promoting success is the right direction. That's how economy grows and the further from pure capitalism we are, the slower this process becomes until the point of stagnation and in the end - recession. Overspending and social policies are number one reason of worldwide crisis and number one reason why countries like Greece, Italy, Spain are going down.

I don't think anyone on here is naive enough to believe that. Becoming "successful" (at what point is defined as success? 250k a year? 500k a year? 1 million a year?) has just as much to do with luck as it does with hard work or intelligence.

What they don't understand is that luck is a relative term. That's elementary conditional probability. From some perspective, everything is a matter of luck - our gender, intelligence, abilities, family, upbringing and so on. If we assume these are arleady known and we don't take them into the equation "luck" factor still remains. This does not mean, however, that we cannot turn the odds in our favor. With enough intelligence we can predict some events and make decisions that lead us to achieving success, however we define it. Some may say, from their perspective, that these people had "luck", some would argue that they simply knew something you don't.

This is irrelevant to our discussion. What drives Groink is simple envy. He tries to fool us into believing that lower class and standard of life is his concern while his true motives were revealed when he started talking about "royal" thieves from "upper circles". This is same language that Marxists and Leninists used, language of hate towards people from privilege that lead to bloody revolution against them. Now we can all see why he boasted about his girls, physique, lied about natural status - he tried to make up for what he perceives as his failure.

There is no need for hate for those who achieved success. Most of them were born to achieve it anyway. If you, Groink, truly are satisfied with your life and your accomplishments then why all this hate?

I didn't say that success was as much about luck as it was about hard work & intelligence. I said it has MORE to do with luck than hard work & intelligence. In fact, it can often just be luck with zero hard work or intelligence. Snooki?

Take 100 intelligent, driven, hard working people. How many of them will become millionaires?

Let's say 10 do. So you have a 90 percent failure rate.

Now - of the 90 that failed - how many will you hear about on TV/Magazines/newspapers/internet/biographies?

That's right - exactly 0. They don't write self help books, they don't get interviewed, they don't write autobiographies. Unlike the 10% that succeeded. So people that did make it, stroke their egos by making up all sorts of reasons they were successful but they rarely understand how random chance played such a major part.

It is called Survivorship bias.

You see successful people that tell you to work hard. You do not see unsuccessful people that also worked hard. Hence, you end up with a skewed perspective. The successful themselves also have a skewed perspective.

"luck" is is quite a few things IMO..

Being prepared to capitalize on an opportunity where the next man just lets it slip by. Having the belief in oneself that they will succeed at something that has no guarantee, and having the balls to go way out on a limb to go get something,and having the smarts to see something that most people don't see.

There is also just the element of chance, being in the right place at the right time, but ll those other things ave to be in place.

I'll give you a perfect example....

in the mid 90's. a very good friend of mine was working for our very, very wealthy friend who owned numerous car dealerships across Long Island, he supervised security on a couple of car lots.

The rich guy decides he wants to subcontract security for all of his lots, offsite storage and everything...like 25 locations. My friend asks for the contract, the rich guy half-jokingly says "fine, if you can have a uniformed , equipped crew ready to take over in two weeks time, you got the gig" . what he didn't know was my buddy has been saving his money for years,and  had a crew ready to go in less than two weeks, he busted his ass 24/7 making that happen, and everyone called him a "lucky fuck" who had that "handed" to him

Yes - Snooki did what she did. As did another thousand women just like her.

As for insulting Snooki, what are you talking about?

Your post is quite fascinating. First of all you appear to project a spiritual side saying that a higher power is involved. Then you later equate success as being about how much money you have.

Money is important in life but you should not rate yourself or others by how much they have accumulated. Especially as it's down to luck in the first place.

Remember the 'backlash' when Huck called it "Chik Fila Day" on Aug 1st, and suddenly they had lines around the block?

Papa john was hoping to become the sustainable pizza choice for people who hate obama. 

Turns out, nobody really noticed or cared...

The guy was a success at making pizza. Now he thinks he's Mr Politics.

He's the same as all these Hollywood assholes who think people give 2 shits about their political opinions.

Just a bunch of spiritually void people that need to constantly massage their own egos.

Very beautiful indeed.

Whenever we drive past a big house like that, my wife always says "I'd never want a house that big, I'd never be able to keep it clean".

The fact she has a maid to clean our normal sized house seems to be lost on her... You gotta love women.

You fail at your definition of success and your estimations are not true. You also fail to understand what is "random chance" and probability. Overall, what you said is semantic and logical mess.

pseudo-intellect superstar right here.

Yes, but what you probably don't get is that someone has to tell the maids what to do and to make sure they do it. Translation, a bigger house is harder for the mistress to keep clean. Your wife is right.
