The Cost of Everything Will Necessarily Skyrocket!

Franchise owners went to Washington to lobby against ObamaCare:

Franchise owners say the employer mandate threatens to erase their narrow profit margins and are telling lawmakers they need to overhaul the law before it’s too late.

“Employees won’t have the hours they need, and they won’t get employer-sponsored healthcare, either,” said Steve Caldeira, president and CEO of the International Franchise Association (IFA).

“[Franchisees] are dealing with high commodity costs, high energy prices, higher taxes from the ‘fiscal-cliff’ deal, and now they are trying to work through ObamaCare,” he said.

High commodity costs? Blame Bernanke. Higher taxes? That was a campaign promise. ObamaCare? Was designed to put the squeeze on small business.

These are all features, not bugs.
