Yes, and Papa John could compromise by not giving away a million free pizzas and instead do the right thing and put the cost of that giveaway towards treating his employees like human beings - a.k.a. provide healthcare. Instead he'd rather use Obamacare as a boogeyman excuse to allow him to continue being a cheapskate towards the people that are the backbone of his fortune.
He said in the past Obamacare would force him to increase the price of his shitty pizzas by 14 cents. WOW that is just too expensive! My $12 shitty pizza now costs $12.14! The horror! I would definitely buy a shitty pizza for $12, but add 14 cents to that and you've crossed the line, buddy!

President Obama took office in the first quarter of 2009, when median household income was $54,797.63.

As of the last quarter of 2011, median household income was $52,377.21.

This was the interval Mr. Zandi suggested using to check Mr. Romney’s statement, and it shows an income drop of $2,420.42.

That’s not $3,000, of course, but it’s still pretty bad.

One could also reasonably argue that it might be more appropriate to use the quarter before Mr. Obama took office as the baseline, rather than the quarter in which he was sworn in.

In the fourth quarter of 2008, median household income was about $55,380.17.

Starting from that quarter gives us a decline of $3,002.96, almost exactly the number Mr. Romney cited.

The free market has spoken; not sure why the employees are taking the blame. Seems like Hostess couldn't stay competitive and the cost of labor is only a piece of the puzzle. I thought you people who read the WSJ understood economics? Maybe not. By the way, the new CEO is a hatchet man so no surprise this is where this ended up. There is now a convenient scapegoat that all you righties like to blame everything on for Hostess closing. Yes it's those disgusting people who want a living wage, health care, safe workplaces, vacations, etc. Man, those little people want everything!

They hope that would mean another company may buy some of the iconic Hostess brands and the plant in Biddeford would be continue to operate but under a different owner.

The penalty/tax will be phased in from 2014 to 2016.

The minimum penalty/tax in 2016 will be $695 per person and up to 3-times that per family.

After 2016, these amounts will increase at the rate of inflation.

The minimum penalty/tax per person will start at $95 in 2014 (and then increase through 2016)

No family will ever pay more than 3X the per-person penalty, regardless of how many people are in the family.

The $695 per-person penalty is only for those who make between $9,500 and ~$37,000 per year.

If you make less than ~$9.500, you're exempt. If you make more than ~$37,000, your penalty is calculated by the following formula...
The penalty is 2.5% of any household income above the level at which you are required to file a tax return. That level is currently $9,500 per person and $19,000 per couple. The penalty on any income above that is 2.5%. So the penalty can get expensive quickly if you make a lot of money.
However, the penalty can never be more than the cost of a "Bronze" heath insurance plan purchased through one of the state "exchanges" that will be created as part of Obamacare. The CBO estimates that these policies will cost $4,500-$5,000 per person and $12,000-$12,500 per family in 2016, with the costs rising thereafter.

So, basically, you're looking at penalties of approximately the following at the following income levels:

Less than $9,500 income =$0

$9,500 -$37,000 income =$695

$50,000 income =$1,000

$75,000 income =$1,600
$100,000 income =$2,250
$125,000 income =$2,900
$150,000 income =$3,500
$175,000 income =$4,100
$200,000 income =$4,700
Over $200,000 = The cost of a "bronze" health-insurance plan
The IRS will collect the penalty-tax, a fact that will no doubt further enrage those who hate Obamacare.

But here's some more good news for those folks:

The IRS will not have the power to charge you criminally or seize your assets if you refuse to pay.

The IRS will only have the ability to sue you. And the most the IRS can collect from you if it wins the suit is 2X the amount you owe.

So if you want to thumb your nose at the penalty-tax, the IRS won't be able to do as much to you as they could if you refused to pay, say, income tax.

By the way, the following folks will be exempt from the penalty-tax:

Those who make less than $9,500

Employees whose employers only offer plans that cost more than 8% of the employee's income

Those with "hardships"

Members of Indian tribes

Members of certain religions that don't pay Social Security tax, such as Amish, Hutterites, or Mennonites

And, of course, Obamacare isn't free.

So, whether you pay the penalty or not, you're going to have to pay a lot of other taxes to pay for it.

Here they are >

Those whose employers pay for all or most of comprehensive healthcare plans (costing $10,200 for an individual or $27,500 for families) will have to pay a 40% tax on the amount their employer pays.

The 2018 start date is said to have been a gift to unions, which often have comprehensive plans.( ATR.org )

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Friday joined the chorus of Republican governors and other officials criticizing Mitt Romney’s assertion that “gifts” from President Barack Obama helped the Democrat win reelection.

“Yeah, sure,” Christie replied when asked by MSNBC host Joe Scarborough if Romney’s comments were “a terrible thing to say.”“You can’t expect to be the leader of all the people and be divisive,” Christie continued.“You have to talk about themes, policies, that unite people.”

Way to go Chris,,,,,,,,throw Romney under the bus with the rest of the scum where they belong!!! LMAO!
I think Chris is finally on to this guy...McCain also said in a statement to CNN news , " Take your losses like man and move on like I did", "The reason I lost was because a better candidate beat me"

Prominent Republican governors have united in their condemnation of Romney’s remarks, which he made in a post-election call with donors. Louisiana’s Bobby Jindal, Wisconsin’s Scott Walker and New Mexico’s Susana Martinez have also distanced themselves from the man who was their party’s standard-bearer only two weeks ago.

Christie did excuse Romney’s remarks, nothing the candidate is still feeling the disappointment.

“Mitt Romney is a friend of mine,” Christie said.“I understand he is very upset about having lost the election, he’s very disappointed.… I’ve lost elections, but never for the presidency. I’m sure it stings.”

“Do I wish he hadn’t said those things?” the New Jersey governor added.“Of course. But on the other hand, I’m not going to bury the guy for it.”

Christie also had advice for Republicans looking to rebuild the party:“Do your job.”

Mitt Romney, a guy who routinely pays less than 15% in taxes on millions of $ income, significantly less than my effective tax rate and that of many others who make far less than he does, has the audacity to talk about "gifts" from the government. The carried interest loophole, a gift that has benefited him so greatly over the years, is a farce. But I'm sure in his mind he somehow deserves this special treatment. What a hypocritical jerk. Thank God this clueless, aristocratic vulture capitalist lost..........

Under the Affordable Care Act, small business owners who cover a portion of the premium for their employees' health insurance will get a tax credit for up to 50% of that cost.

So my costs for healthcare are going to drop.

The ACA is a GOOD thing.

//////////

For tax years 2010 through 2013, the maximum credit is 35 percent for small business employers and 25 percent for small tax-exempt employers such as charities.

An enhanced version of the credit will be effective beginning Jan. 1, 2014.

Additional information about the enhanced version will be added to IRS.gov as it becomes available.

In general, on Jan. 1, 2014, the rate will increase to 50 percent and 35 percent, respectively.

//////////

To be eligible, you must cover at least 50 percent of the cost of single (not family) health care coverage for each of your employees.

You must also have fewer than 25 full-time equivalent employees (FTEs).

Those employees must have average wages of less than $50,000 a year.

Let us break it down for you even more.

You are probably wondering:

what IS a full-time equivalent employee.

Basically, two half-time workers count as one full-timer.

Here is an example, 20 half-time employees are equivalent to 10 full-time workers.

That makes the number of FTEs 10 not 20.

Now let’s talk about average wages. Say you pay total wages of $200,000 and have 10 FTEs. To figure average wages you divide $200,000 by 10 – the number of FTEs – and the result is your average wage. The average wage would be $20,000.

Also, the amount of the credit you receive works on a sliding scale. The smaller the business or charity, the bigger the credit. So if you have more than 10 FTEs or if the average wage is more than $25,000, the amount of the credit you receive will be less.

Many Republicans may be backing away from Mitt Romney's so-called "gifts" comments, but one anchor is standing right behind the former presidential candidate: Bill O'Reilly.

Romney managed to cause himself trouble even after losing the election, when statements he made on a private call to donors surfaced in the media. Romney said that President Obama beat him because of the many "gifts" he made to core constituencies like African Americans, Latinos and young people.

This line of thinking happened to line up pretty closely with O'Reilly's widely-circulated comments on Election Night. The Fox News host said that Obama was winning because people wanted "stuff" and "things" and the president was more prepared to give it to them than Romney, the defender of "traditional" values, was.

Speaking on his Thursday show, O'Reilly defended Romney, and implied that the governor had drawn inspiration from him.

Leave it to FOX to bail out another Republican..LMAO!
