    John Schnatter, in his own words:

    "During that same interview, talking about Obamacare I said, though it wasn't widely reported:

    "The good news is 100% of the population (full-time workers) is going to get health insurance. I'm cool with that."
    "We're all going to pay for it. There's nothing for free."
    "And this way I get to provide health insurance and I'm not at a competitive disadvantage ... our competitors are going to have to do the same thing."
    Papa John's, like most businesses, is still researching what the Affordable Care Act means to our operations. Regardless of the conclusion of our analysis, we will honor this law, as we do all laws, and continue to offer 100% of Papa John's corporate employees and workers in company-owned stores health insurance as we have since the company was founded in 1984."

    Obamacare doesn't require employers to pay for health insurance for their employees. It requires employers with 50 or more employees to offer it, but the employees pay for the health insurance premiums. Sounds like Papa John's finally figured out what the law actually says rather than just listening to right-wing talking points.
