Restaurant owner plans 'ObamaCare surcharge'

Metz told The Huffington Post he's adding the fee because he thinks the law will eventually expand, requiring him to begin covering part-time employees.

Other companies, including Papa John's pizza, have said they'll raise their base prices — Papa John's will charge about 12 cents more per pizza — to cover the added costs of providing healthcare coverage to their workers. Metz, though, is the first to tack on a separate fee, specifically itemized for "ObamaCare."


UPDATE: Metz, through a spokesman, is now saying won't actually implement the policy. He still plans to cut his workers' hours, but "the surcharge is not to be implemented or considered at this time.”
