That the bulk of Americans (especially those 4+ million whose insurance policies have recently been cancelled as a result of the ACA) have to pay more for healthcare as a result of Obamacare, is now largely accepted and well-known. But did you know that the cost of Obamacare is slowly metastasizing to other places? Such as your restaurant bill.

Presenting Exhibit A.

From CNN:

    Several restaurants in a Florida chain are asking customers to help foot the bill for Obamacare. 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

That might be a very effective way to get the average non-involved citizen to understand how much Obamacare is hurting our economy.

And their pocketbooks.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

Is the msm telling the public to be upset about this?

The public, as a collective body, seems to be directed by the msm.

It's a good way to try and get the public's attention because it's a concrete instance, not some abstract set of philosophies or policies; however, it is a little rhetorical because those costs would have ended up in the prices charged by the restaurants anyways.  Nonetheless, I wish a lot more businesses would start doing the same thing.  In fact, even retailers could probably add an ACA surcharge to what they charge for the goods they sell.
