'Obamacare Surcharge' Could Go National, Business Federation Warns

 

VERBATIM

The five percent "Obamacare surcharge" levied by a Florida restaurant chain boss could catch on nationally, a spokesman for the 350,000 member National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB) says.

John Mertz, who "runs approximately 40 Denny's and owns the Hurricane Grill & Wings franchise" made news today in an article reporting the new surcharge:

'With Obamacare due to be fully implemented in January 2014, Metz has justified his move by claiming it is 'the only alternative. I've got to pass on the cost to the customer.''

Will the "Obamacare surcharge" catch on with other retailers in the U.S.?

NFIB spokesman Kevan Chapman tells "The Right Views" that it just might:

"Clearly, you are seeing what real people are doing with costly situations. This is no different than the airline carriers adding a bag fee or noting the TSA extra expense.

"I suspect this Denny's owner wants his customers to understand why their costs are going up and what they must do to handle the cost increase.

"Frankly, they are just being honest with the customer. It's possible you may see more of this as employers begin major preparation for the law."
