Restaurants now charging customers an Obamacare tax
This feels like something out of “1984,” in which there’s no escaping Big Brother. Restaurants in Florida are now adding an “Affordable Care Act surcharge” to customer’s bills.
Diners at eight Gator’s Dockside casual eateries are finding a 1% Affordable Care Act surcharge on their tabs, which comes to 15 cents on a typical $15 lunch tab. Signs on the door and at tables alert diners to the fee, which is also listed separately on the bill.
The Gator Group’s full-time hourly employees won’t actually receive health insurance until December. But the company said it implemented the surcharge now because of the compliance costs it’s facing ahead of the Affordable Care Act’s employer mandate kicking in in 2015.
I guess it’s better than businesses shutting their doors because they can’t afford to comply with the ACA. Still, I wonder if this is just the tip of the iceberg, and even bigger fees are going to be showing up everywhere.
