Leftists want their lunch and they want it free

I am curious. From where do liberals believe funds for new government mandates come? For example, where do leftists think the funds to pay for an increase in minimum wage will come? Will the funds come from…

    …some kind of spontaneous wealth generation associated with the magic of passing legislation?

    …out of the pockets of business owners thus reducing their incomes improving income equality?

    …the Scrooge McDuck cash-and-gold vaults of wealthy industrialists?

    …the free lunch counter?

    …the stimulus fairy?

The one place they are certain the funds for new government mandates will never, ever originate is their pockets. That would be unacceptable to the left.

Well, here we have a business who wanted them to think about who is really covering the cost of Obamacare.

A local restaurant has added a surcharge to every tab in order to pay for its employees’ healthcare.

“Everyone has the same policy that I do as the owners,” owner and chef Walter Manske said. “And we offer it to everyone; (the) dishwasher, busboy, waiters, across the board.”

Manske says that, ultimately, it is up to the customer whether to take the surcharge out of the gratuity.

Oh, boy. That three percent charge has the moonbats hopping mad. Here are some representative comments.

It’s not MY responsibility to take care of YOUR employees’ healthcare… that’s YOUR job.

So now when you make me a sandwich I owe you health care? No thanks. You are welcome to serve people who accept this arrangement, but it won’t be me. I pay for the sandwich only.

If this is what they want to do they need to put a large sign at the front of the place telling customers well beforehand.

So in addition to paying the bulk of the employee’s salary with tips, we’re now asked to fund their benefits too? Stuff it. I’ll make a sandwich myself.

Eat at home and don’t pay for any increases in your restaurant bill.

Well, what do you know? It turns out that folks don’t want to pay for increased costs associated with government mandates like Obamacare. Who would have guessed?

Of course anyone who isn’t an economic muggle understands that the only difference between this restaurant and every other similarly situated restaurant is that this one is itemizing its government mandated increase in costs. The rest of them are simply increasing menu prices and thus concealing the cost of Obamacare.

As for the last two commentators, someone should tell them the grocery stores where they buy their eat-at-home chow have raised prices to pay for Obamacare too.

There is nothing so jarring to the moonbat mind as the discovery that his lunch isn’t, in fact, free and that he will be required to contribute funds to pay for the programs he so strongly supports. Leftists hate it when the stimulus fairy lets them down and they are forced to pay for what they demand.

      LOL!! I forgot about down twinkles. I think I will introduce these rules of order during my March board of directors meeting. That should go well.

    I see an audit in that restaurant’s future.
    Can’t be allowed to make fun of dear leader.

    A couple of new restaurants have opened here
    that do not collect a 10% gross surcharge to give to
    their slaves collectively as tips. They are pissed. Screw’em.
    I collected 3x more tips than salary when I was a teen
    waiter. I was GOOD.
    As for the owner, he should post why he can’t offer
    the cheapest burger on the street. Obaymecare and I’d
    put it in their face at every chance. The real food lovers
    will come back.
