Scott Gerber, founder of Young Entrepreneur Council, recently interviewed celebrity chef Mario Batali and asked him how Obamacare will affect business costs. This was Batali’s answer:
[box type=”shadow”]“We have to figure out ‘Are we all in this together?’ or ‘Are You on your own?’ and there’s a thousand ways to look at it. I’m of the ‘all in this together’, I’m a firm believer that Americans in the richest time of the richest country of all time with the greatest potential for technology, and still have 1 in 5 children hungry, it’s perplexing to me, and although I’m not ready to spearhead the political movement, I’m certainly voting that way when I think about it.”[/box]
Batali said his company has been thinking about how Obamacare will affect them since day one, but feels that this is how the economy will grow and thrive, even if it’s going to increase costs for him.
“They’re learning as they go, and all’s they can say is that if they don’t understand it then they’re going to throw it away, and that is probably the safest way to go, but the best thing would be more information.”
Batali is a firm believer in doing this right and following the law, so it makes sense he supports Obamacare, even if it will create more expenses for his business.
