Add Applebee's and Jimmy John's to the growing list of small companies and franchisers warning that Obamacare will kill profits and force local stores to raise prices or slash employees and their hours.

Like a lot of small businesses, he said that the firm is considering cutting hours of workers to 28 to get under the Obamacare cap that requires companies to either fully fund health care or pay a $2,000 fine.

"We have to do that. There's no other way we can survive it, because we think it will cost us 50 cents a sandwich. That's just the actual cost," he told Fox. "If you have 40 or 50 employees at a restaurant, and the penalty is $2,000, and you're going to pay $80,000 or $100,000 penalty, there goes the profit in your restaurant," he added.
I would've been here sooner but i had to make the sandwich and mop the floor before i delivered it on account of Obamacare forcing us to slash employees.

"Why's there a sock in my sandwich"!

"Oh sorry, i guess i got confused".
