Coming Soon to a Restaurant Near You, An Obamacare Fee on Your Food Bill … Resistance is Futile


So you thought you could hide from Obamacare, this insidious law will eventually affect every American one was or another … Resistance is Futile.

Possibly coming to a restaurant you frequent, customers asked to help foot the bill for Obamacare healthcare increases and the not-so Affordable Healthcare ActGator’s Dockside, a Florida restaurant chain, is adding a 1% ACA surcharge to all of their patron’s bills in order to help pay for their increase in healthcare charges for their full time employees. Just curious, if it is so affordable, why do businesses need to further place a burden on their patrons to pay more, while receiving nothing more in return? Signs welcoming customers at the door read “The costs associated with ACA compliance could ultimately close our doors.”

Several restaurants in a Florida chain are asking customers to help foot the bill for Obamacare.

Diners at eight Gator’s Dockside casual eateries are finding a 1% Affordable Care Act surcharge on their tabs, which comes to 15 cents on a typical $15 lunch tab. Signs on the door and at tables alert diners to the fee, which is also listed separately on the bill.

The Gator Group’s full-time hourly employees won’t actually receive health insurance until December. But the company said it implemented the surcharge now because of the compliance costs it’s facing ahead of the Affordable Care Act’s employer mandate kicking in in 2015.

“The costs associated with ACA compliance could ultimately close our doors,” the sign reads. “Instead of raising prices on our products to generate the additional revenue needed to cover the costs of ACA compliance, certain Gator’s Dockside locations have implemented a 1% surcharge on all food and beverage purchases only.”

The Borg Obamacare … Resistance is Futile

We are reminded by the Heritage Foundation that other restaurants in California have done the same and added ACA surcharges to their bills.

What do you think happens when a new tax is forced upon a business by the feds, it gets passed on to the customer. Remember, the SCOTUS deemed Obamacare constitutional because it was a tax, even though Obama originally said to the American people that it was not. What is going to happen in the future when we find out that Obamacare is more costly than previously projected? Restaurants will have a much greater surcharge than 1%.

      This business is just letting their customers know that all taxes the feds make must be paid by the people regardless of whom it is levied against.

      If more businesses would be up front like this one, the people would soon understand that they are the only source of payment.

      The government at all levels receives its funds from the people. Businesses must increase their prices for products or services whenever any government entity creates a tax.

      If Obamacare were not destroying the country, which IMO is the purpose of it primarily, it would be funny. There are thousands of new codes doctors must use for various illnesses. Among them “Suicide by jellyfish.” This is not a joke. I wonder if there has ever been a suicide by jellyfish. I wonder if they just sat in a room thinking up outlandish codes in an effort to destroy the health care system. And why would they want to do that? Because, IMO, Obama is a Muslim bent on destruction so that he can deliver the US to the Grand Caliphate.
