“I’ll be probably calling around, looking for somebody to play cards with me or something, because I’m getting kind of lonely in this big house. So maybe — maybe a whole bunch of members of the House Republican caucus want to come over and socialize more.”

    “Papa” John Schnatter, Papa John’s founder and CEO, is back in the headlines once more for his assertion that there’s no way on God’s green Earth he can afford to provide health care for a portion of his employees, as mandated by the Affordable Care Act. Now, Schnatter hasn’t been hurting for…

Besides simply being mean, John Schmatter’s [@IAmPapaJohn] threat to cut back employee hours so as not to fall under the requirements of the Affordable Care Act, means having food preparers and servers without access to healthcare.  I imagine a lot of people will see that as a public health issue.

  6. I’m just going to say bluntly, we were wrong,” the former House Speaker told CBS host Charlie Rose. “I think Karl Rove, Michael Barone, Dick Morris, a whole group of us, frankly, misunderstood what was happening in the country. We thought with 8 percent unemployment — or approximately 8 percent — with gasoline the price that it was, etc., that it would be almost impossible for President Obama to be re-elected. He deserves enormous credit. His campaign deserves credit.

    Romney responds to controversial video that leaked where he made comments regarding “the 47% of the country who don’t pay any taxes”

    Here’s part of what Romney said:

    There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that’s an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what…These are people who pay no income tax.
