3. I JUST READ THIS ABOUT APPLEBEES

http://thinkprogress.org/health/2012/11/09/1173181/applebees-ceo-obamacare/

and the info about tax credits looks good FOR the employer Here is the law on the credits:

"The health care reform package provides a temporary sliding-scale small employer tax credit to help offset the cost of employer-provided coverage. Generally, a small employer is one with no more than 25 employees and average annual wages of less than $50,000.
In 2010 through 2013, eligible employers may qualify for a tax credit for up to 35 percent of their contribution toward the employee’s health insurance premium. In 2014 and beyond, eligible employers that purchase coverage through an insurance exchange may qualify for a credit for two years of up to 50 percent of their contribution. Qualified tax-exempt employers would be eligible for a reduced credit. Salary reduction contributions are not counted.
Employers with 10 or fewer employees and average annual wages of less than $25,000 are eligible for the full credit. These wage limits are indexed for inflation. See ¶14,426 for more information."

4. If they are fired it will have nothing to do with ACA. Employers will gain and so will employees+

It hasn't really started yet. Look at this for small businesses. There are tax credits for them.

5. Anyone claiming their employees are being fired because of ACA

are using it as an excuse so they aren't the "bad" guy. If people would inform themselves on the legislation that is being used as cover to fire themselves, we'd have a groundswell of support for ACA and people would at least know their employers are cowardly assholes.

7. Tell him his party shouldn't have supported

right to work laws and an employer's ability to fire an employee for any reason or no reason and he wouldn't be losing his job because his employer feels like being an asshole. It might replace some of the mad with a sad.

8. I have a few friends that work at Applebees

NONE get health insurance and basically most of their pay is in the form of tips not their wages from Applebee's.
