Congressmen Phil Roe (R-TN) and Tim Walberg (R-MN) in today’s Washington Examiner:
On July 23, 2013, we held a joint hearing in which we heard from a witness responsible for implementing this mandate for a large company that employs 10,000 people Jamie Richardson, a vice president with the White Castle restaurant chain.
White Castle has offered their employees health insurance since before the Great Depression, and Mr. Richardson testified that this law and the uncertainty it creates is harming his company’s employees, its ability to offer health insurance, and its capability to create jobs.
He said that White Castle’s growth was directly and negatively impacted by this law. Richardson said, “I would like to tell you we’ve continued to open more restaurants in more neighborhoods, providing more jobs, and serving more customers. I’d like to tell you that, but I can’t. In fact, White Castle’s growth has halted.”
Any law which prevents Belly Bombers from coming to Colorado must — must — be repealed.
