Philadelphia pizzeria owner and curator of the nation's only pizza museum says he would gladly pay 20 cents more per pie if it meant Affordable Health Care for Americans



 

PHILADELPHIA, PA  -- Last week, John Schnatter, the founder and CEO of Papa John's Pizza - a Mitt Romney supporter and fundraiser - announced that the Affordable Care Act will raise the cost of his pizza 11 to 14 cents each, or 15 to 20 cents per order.

 

But small business owners disagree.

 

Philadelphia pizzeria owner Brian Dwyer, creator and spokesperson for Pizza Brain, says "As a pizza consumer, I will gladly pay 20 cents more per pie if that meant that people and their families got health insurance."

 

"The whole idea of a pizza shop is that it is a community hub, where strangers can meet each other and share a slice of pizza. Pizza is so inherently communal that to complain about 11 cents a slice is a good indicator that the owner of Papa Johns has lost touch with the heart of what pizza is really about; community."

 

Brian, says as a small business owner he is excited about the prospect of providing his employees health insurance. "We want to provide health insurance for our employees, we want to provide our employees with the best possible options. To be able to give back to the people that work for and with us is what Pizza Brain is all about."
