Skip to comments.Domino's: Obamacare Requires 34 Million Pizza Nutrition Signs
Posted on 11/30/2012 10:10:09 AM PST by Nachum
New Obamacare regulations will force pizza chains like Domino's to post up to 34 million nutrition signs in its stores -- one for every pizza combination the company makes.
The rules require fast food and grocery stores that have more than 20 stores to require labels for each product they produce.
Jenny Fouracre-Petko, the legislative director for Dominos, said mandated signs will cost Dominos nearly $5,000 per store. Even worse, the cost will get passed down to the consumer, many of whom will never see the signs since 10 percent of pizza customers never enter a Dominos store because they use Dominos exclusively as a delivery service.
"It's not like a Big Mac. Pizza is customizable, there are options to factor in," Fouracre-Petko said. "There are 34 million pizza combinations. We've done the math."
Erik Lieberman, counsel for the Food Marketing Institute, said grocery stores will have to do the same.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
I'm going to try and just laugh at the chaos for the next 4 years. I really have no other option. This is (so they tell me) what the people wanted.
hey, but obamacare and his taxes will only hurt the filthy rich!!!..
Ah, clarification: it’s not 34m signs throughout the franchise, it’s 34m signs _per_store_.
Don’t you have to install windmills too?
Has as much to do with healthcare.
34 million per store. Friggin hilarious.
And you wonder why intelligent store owners tell Obama voters to go to hell?
“Did you really think we want those laws observed?” said Dr. Ferris. “We want them to be broken. You’d better get it straight that it’s not a bunch of boy scouts you’re up against... We’re after power and we mean it... There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted and you create a nation of law-breakers and then you cash in on guilt. Now that’s the system, Mr. Reardon, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be
much easier to deal with.” (”Atlas Shrugged”, 1957)
Ah, clarification: its not 34m signs throughout the franchise, its 34m signs _per_store_.
I think one must take a sanity test for any government official job because obviously either most are hopelessly insane or they have nothing to do except to make up regulations. But, people did get their obamaphones.
An enterprising entrepreneur would take advantage of this.
Post a placard of the stupid nutrition information for each pizza with a single type .... the basic pizza is bread and sauce.
Then charge whatever for each topping and list nutrition information for each topping, singly. Charge a dollar - whatever. If the patron wants the nutrition information for each additional topping to the standard pizza, charge them a $1.00 to look up on the computer what that is.
Blame the extra expense for those fart-sniffers who’d buy the damned pizza anyway, but want to be a horse’s ass, on Obama and his SAB wife.
I don't have to re-read it again now. I just look out my window.
Or talk to pretty much anybody.
This is Michelle's handiwork.
Sign #1: Due to Obamacare, we now only offer 8 pizzas. If you have any comments or complaints, please call your Congressman and President Obama.
And a sign for each pizza.

Love that quote. I’m stealing it.
They’re just stuck in some quaint old capitalist mentality. The solution is really quite simple: donations to Obama’s third term re-election campaign or to the DNC will buy them an exemption.
