And fry your own fries. This from the Hudson Institute:

Our report shows that [ObamaCare] will have negative effects on the franchising industry’s ability to grow and create much-needed jobs for the U.S. economy. We estimate that the law will negatively affect tens of thousands of franchise businesses, adding more than $6.4 billion in increased costs, not including the cost of regulatory compliance. Further, we estimate that the jobs of more than 3.2 million full-time employees in franchise businesses would be put at risk.

    I always loved the thought of Franchising. It looks like Obama may be kicking my dream down the drain.

    Great, the most vulnerable segment of the population are further affected by this. I do feel bad for most of the people who are working in these franchise business now that their jobs are on very shaky grounds.
