For all of his bitching about President Obama and support for Mitt Romney, though, Schnatter’s stock price was at $51.90 per share on Election Day, more than triple the $16.58 it closed with when President Obama was inaugurated.
“Next door is a 12,000-square-foot house. That could be my maid’s quarters one day,” he says lightly. Then he catches himself and adds, “No, I shouldn’t say that, it sounds like an insult.”

The people who defend these greedy cockroaches are going to be the first ones to be lined up against a wall when the second revolution comes.

This shouldn't really be that much of a surprise. Most of the wealthiest people in the world complain when some legislation comes into play that increases their tax rate or somehow limits them in what they can buy. I am sure that both people you have mentioned are angry because now it will be harder to but that platinum bathtub and toilet combo they wanted. Greed is a sickening thing when you see magnates such as these griping about what legislators have done to limit them in any manner. It's repugnant in my opinion.

Corporate greed.. It seems Ayn Rand was incorrect in suggesting big business men are the heroes in society. All Papa John has to do is raise his pizza price by 14 cents to pay for Obamacare.

The man has a right to run his business as he sees fit and sees it's necessary just as you have the right to buy a pizza elsewhere, IMO. I may buy one just for the sake of the fact I really don't think boycotts in a bad economy are the least bit helpful. I know people at the college working at Papa Johns. What did they do? Boycotts usually hit the wrong people but we each have our own choice to make with our dollars. The free market in action.
So, I knocked down the broom closet in Mick's Lounge, bought $1600 in used restaurant equipment, installed an oven in the tiny space and started selling pizzas out of the back of the restaurant. And that's when Papa John's was born! I put my heart and soul, and everything I had learned from my father and grandfather, into my pizza business, and it paid off. In 1984, I opened my first Papa John's restaurant, and the rest is history!"

And we also shouldn't let them make fortunes off the back of hard working people, while expecting tax cuts
