Grocery Store Prices, Even Delivery Pizza Will Rise Under ObamaCare

Creative Commons rdpeyton pizza Grocery Store Prices, Even Delivery Pizza Will Rise Under ObamaCare

There are enough obvious tax hikes and fees associated with ObamaCare to concern any fiscal conservative – or working American, for that matter. Perhaps more upsetting, though, are the unknown financial consequences set to hit businesses. These added expenses, by the way, will inevitably make their way down to the consumer level.

One requirement, which affects all fast food and grocery stores with more than 20 locations is a requirement to post nutrition labels for every product produced.

According to a spokesperson for Domino’s Pizza, the pizza industry will be hit especially hard.

“Pizza is customizable; there are options to factor in,” she said. “There are 34 million pizza combinations – we’ve done the math.”

The estimated cost to add the multiple signs required under the new federal mandate will be $5,000 per store, the spokesperson added. She noted that, even with the addition of signs, “10 percent of pizza customers never enter a Domino’s store” and won’t see the information.

She conceded, as did Papa John’s founder John Schnatter weeks earlier, that intrusive regulation associated with ObamaCare will result in more expensive pizzas. Somehow, any business trying to maintain profitability in the face of constant bureaucratic opposition is portrayed as the antagonist by a leftist media and groups try desperately to organize protests of the “evil” private sector.

There is never a similar – and far more justifiable – demonization of the government regulations that necessitated these price increases.

According to a representative of the Food Marketing Institute, grocery stores represent another sector set to be hit hard by ObamaCare-related regulatory costs.

Using blueberry muffins as an example, he said, “If one is sold, you need a nutritional sign or sticker. If a half dozen are sold, a different one is required; same if you sell a dozen.”

Considering grocery stores “average 1,500 fresh-made items each,” the spokesman estimates the industry will absorb a $1 billion financial hit from this regulation alone.

The further this nation goes down the rabbit hole of Socialism that is ObamaCare, the more we will notice the far-reaching hand of government in the private sector at every level – from CEO to you and me.

      Hi Edward,

      Did you know that in the obamacare health there is a Micro chip, almost as the same that is being used on dogs and cats, no one talking about this.

      This is not a good thing the government will used this as a GPS and will used it control the citizens. Please read this copy of a article that I found in regards to the RIFD Chip.

      "Buried deep within the over 1,000 pages of the massive US Health Care Bill (PDF) in a “non-discussed” section titled: Subtitle C-11 Sec. 2521— National Medical Device Registry, and which states its purpose as:

      “The Secretary shall establish a national medical device registry (in this subsection referred to as the ‘registry’) to facilitate analysis of postmarket safety and outcomes data on each device that

      "(A) is or has been used in or on a patient; and
      "(B) is a class III device; or
      "(ii) a class II device that is implantable.”

      • Linda A. From NY says:

        To Edward.
        " according to this report, this new law, when fully implemented, provides the framework for making the United States the first Nation in the World to require each and every one of its citizens to have implanted in them a radio-frequency identification (RFID) microchip for the purpose of controlling who is, or isn’t, allowed medical care in their country."

        This chip will also be used to keep track of all citizens, don't be surprise if the economy crashes becasue we are headed toward a cashless Sociaity and the chip will hold all personal information from medical to your bank account. Believe me that is not a good thing, in the Bible of Rev.13:16-17 speaks of this chip.

          Hi Seek,

          I went to the web site, it is an important article, people need to see this and wake up in regards to this RIFD chip. The government will use in an evil manner on us. I don't trust this government, I don't believe that they have their best interest at heart for the citizens.

          Thank you for bringing it out, at least you believe me, you be surprise at the ignorance of people, most citizens are not aware of what is coming there too busy watching dancing with the stars and all those stupid celebrities.

          once again thank you for posting this link, it is important for all to see

          • Seeks_the_truth says:

            Glad to be of service. I always feel it best to let people read things for themselves. That way it's not a he said/she said. Can't argue with facts. (well you could)
            I realize the ignorance today. I'm in the middle of an "argument" now about facts with someone on a different site.
            What's hilarious is these brain dead liberals slamming news outlets like Fox then turning around and quoting from a obviously far left wing outlet.
            I just slap a smile on my face and push on. lol. No matter what they say, I KNOW the truth.

  4. Seeks_the_truth says:

    These businesses need to make it clear the added cost to their products due to this monstrosity of a power grab. Put the added price in plain view of the consumer and let them know WHY prices rose.
    What would really make a point if ALL business owners pick one or two days to COMPLETELY shut down. No production, no shipments, no restocking. Show the people what it means to lose our businesses.

  5. I did NOT need to read an article to know that!

  6. Linda A. From NY says:

    If this is going Forward, he can keep it. How are citizens supposed to lived, with food prices going up. And this healthcare will be like a hole in the wall with extra of millions on it at the same time and that will include illegals. How much more can the citizens of this country take? of this nonsense.

    America is being strangle by One man who has no business being our leader. And congress just sits there collecting their paychecks by us the taxpayers and does nothing to stop this madness.

Speak Your Mind
