LA restaurant imposes explicit 3% #Obamacare surcharge. But wait! There’s more.

It’s hard-nosed to take the 3% Obamacare surcharge imposed upon you and pass it explicitly along to the consumer, as one Los Angeles restaurant is doing.

But it’s pretty danged cold to say this:

If customers do not want to pay the charge, the restaurant suggests that customers deduct three percent from the tip they would leave their waiter.

Note that I wrote ‘hard-nosed’ and ‘cold,’ not ‘horrible’ and ‘unfair.’ Elections have consequences; and Los Angeles County gave Barack Obama 69% of the vote in 2012.  Lowered economic activity on a micro and macro level is, alas, what these people voted for.

    Don’t blame me. I voted against God Emperor Barack H. Obama Jr. twice.

    So I’ve seen a similar surcharge at a few places in San Francisco, even before obamacare. Evidently SF’d been doing the mandate thing for a few years already.
