Many of you are probably confused by the news reports you have heard about the Patient Affordable Health Care Act.  This is what most folks call Obama-Care. As I have been saying for some time it should be called the Patient Un-affordable Health Care Act.  When it was passed almost 4 years ago without a single Republican vote, the Democrats even admitted they had not read it, they just passed it.  At the time, millions of folks thought that it was fine because they were going to get FREE health care.      Once the powers in charge in Washington realized what it was really going to do, they delayed it 3 years so the horrible effects would not start until after the President was reelected.  Now that he is safely in office for another term, they have delayed it again.  Why delay it again?  The reason is quite simple, the Democrats want to stay in power.  In about 15 months we will have new congressional elections and it is feared by the Democrats that they may well lose the Senate because of Obama-Care.  So they have delayed it until January of 2015 so that it will not take effect until after the November 2014 elections.  Senator Landrieu is asking the folks of Louisiana to keep her in the Senate, yet she was the deciding vote on Obama-Care.  If she would have voted against it, it would have failed. What are the terrible effects of Obama-Care?  Since January of this year an additional 2% of your check has been withheld, all because the government needs more money. Starting in January of 2014 every American has to have insurance.  If you do not buy insurance, you will be fined by the government. The part of Obama-Care that said your employer had to pay for it has been delayed until January of 2015. Why did the President delay forcing the employers to pay for their employees insurance? Millions of employees are going to have their jobs eliminated or their hours cut because their companies cannot afford the cost of the insurance. Employees around America are going to be furious when they find out that they are going to be charged almost 10 % of their salary to pay for Obama-Care. Hard working employees are going to be livid when they realize that Obama-Care is not free and that in addition to  2% already being taken out of their check, another 9 ½ % will mean they are paying 11 ½ % of their check so we can fund Obama-Care. So now you know why Obama-Care is being pushed back until after next year’s elections.  Remember this when someone asks you to vote for Mary Landrieu, it is her fault you are going to have to pay 11 ½ % of your salary for Health Care and additional payroll taxes, all she had to do was vote no…but instead she voted yes for the tax increases.   ( IS THIS REALLY “FREE HEALTH CARE” ?)                                                             Greg Hamer, Sr. “Trust but Verify”
                         Profile of a Champion       B&G’s Profile of a Champion this month is AC Tonya Vital from Lake Charles. Tonya is originally from Breaux Bridge La. After high school she attended both Southern University in Baton Rouge and ULL in Lafayette majoring in Business Administration.                                 While attending college, Tonya began working for Popeye’s Fried Chicken.  She was quickly promoted to Assistant Manager and on the day she turned 21 she was promoted to Restaurant General Manager.  She helped turn around many Popeye’s locations around Lafayette.   In 2006 after 7 years with Popeye’s, Tonya decided to leave that concept and accepted a new challenge with Ryan’s Steak House.   She worked her way up from Associate Manager to Assistant Manager and then Restaurant General Manager. She stayed in casual dining for 3 years and in 2009 she joined the B&G team in Lake Charles.  She became the Ruth St. RGM and in 2010 was named B&G’s Rookie of the Year. The following year she received the Colonel Taco Award for 2011. In 2012 she re-opened the Prein Lake store where she was the market training manager.  One year later she was promoted to Area Coach for the Lake Charles market.       When Tonya’s not doing an awesome job running her market she enjoys shopping for shoes, dinning out with friends and admiring art.      Anyone that has had the pleasure of working with Tonya will tell you that she is thoughtful, professional and passionate about what she does.        Thanks Tonya for all your hard work and dedication, you truly are a Champion !!!

        RGM in training, Christie Long, was closing Pineville Taco Bell with her AC, Eric Ross, when they had a softball team stop by after their game in Alexandria.  Eric saw the girls walking away from the door going back to the bus.  He went and spoke with the coach who said their game had run late and that they had been to several restaurants in Pineville and no one would allow them in to order.  He told her that if they did not mind waiting on the food because they did not have a lot of staff in the store he would allow them in to order and eat. She was more than happy with that and he allowed all of them in. Eric knows the policy states that no one should be allowed in the lobby after close, but Eric chose to make a decision to take care of their customers.   AWESOME ERIC !!         Christie and her Team rose to the occasion and satisfied their customers.  GREAT JOB TEAM PINEVILLE !!!
