Obama acts as though we no longer have a Constitution

Papa John's pizza has been hounded by the media for comments supposedly made in response to Obamacare — that food prices were on the rise, that franchises would face closure due to escalating health care costs, that workers' hours and positions would be sliced.
Sitrick and Co. chair Mike Sitrick said Mr. Schnatter did not claim that stores would close due to Obamacare costs, and that while he did admit during an investor telephone call that food prices could increase, he also explained the company sold enough pizzas to absorb health care costs.
Mr. Schnatter's comments have been "completely distorted" by some bloggers, Mr. Sitrick told Politico, and as such, the firm has started responding with letters of request for post removal.
