Chris Preovolos reports that a Florida restaurant is hitting customers with an “ACA surcharge.” Heaven forbid that all those overpaid waiters and bussers and line cooks should have access to healthcare.
But why the surcharge now? There are countless local, state and federal programs and taxes are contribute to the cost of doing business, those aren’t broken out on the bill. There’s no surcharge for the paving of public streets in Orlando.
“We’re definitely doing it to stay afloat,” Clark told WPEC. “It’s not political in any way.”
Except that it is political, and that’s fine, just call it what it is.
