Having to raise product price in order to cover medical costs that their snacks probably contributed the need for.

...There's humor in that somewhere.

The only relation I have to twinkies is from some 90s action movie
Isn't it what the fat cop in die hard eats all the time?

Paying a business more so their employees can pay less to live a healthy life, I don't see how that's bad. Imagine if you were the ones 'saved' by obamacare.

Its not a bad idea in theory but in the form it took its screws all the consumers by forcing them bear the brunt of the costs.

It also fines any American if they do not get health insurance. Once you are 18 if you dont sign up for insurance you get fined something to the tune of like 2-5kish or more. Thats a lot for a 18 yr old who cant afford insurance anyway.

One of the biggest issues many people have is that they are being forced to buy something that costs a lot of money (roughly 600 a month on average) and doesnt cover a lot in terms of medical bills.

Mind you this was forced on the public by politicians who get FREE medical care for life once they get elected for only 1 term... Again they dont pay a dime.

All in all what it boils down to is that wages dont really change but you now have to pay what ever insurance compaines charge or be fined for not buying insurance. Most work places still pay the same ammount towards insurance, which is not a lot (except unions who pay more like the twinkie folks). But if their workers opt out and pay the fines the business get fined with them as well. This forces them to raise their prices to cover the large fines.

In other words no one is really saved, the poor get poorer because they have to get fined because they cannot afford the insurance as is.

That is my unbiased opinion as Obamacare doesnt effect me in terms of fines or anything. I have tricare through the military, nothing changes.

The majority of people who manage government programs at a local level are either galactically stupid or just lazy, and all government programs will continue to be terribly inefficient until you fix this problem. Which nobody is interested in doing. And medical expenses in general would be a lot cheaper if you fix the civil law system. But nobody is interested in tort reform either. Instead it's just about raising or cutting taxes, raising or cutting funding.

Contrary to what politicians and the people that elect them might believe, it's not as simple as adding or subtracting $$$. That's not a solution, it's a band aid.

But nobody cares what I think.

its not like hostess snacks are going to go bye bye. its a guarantee that a larger company will buy out the rights to the junk food. and then rebrand it under their name to sell.

they wont disapear you will just see it read another business label where is says hostess now.

plus they have only listed they will be selling off a few brands at the moment, more than likely they will turn the profit from those to keep a single production facility to try to stay alive. they have only listed a few of their labels up for sale at the moment. wonder bread was one. and i forgot the others. but all of these products are multi-million dollar items.

everything will still be around, even if in the end hostess does go out of business. it will be picked up by someone

Speedy- No you are 100% correct we went over all that in a Law class I took.

My bet is that Little Debbie buys out what ever hostess sells off. So all the little goodies will be under a new name.

I read about the Hostess thing this morning, so during lunch break I drove over to a local grocery store and discovered people had rushed in early morning and bought all the twinkies.

"****," I thought, "I don't even really like twinkies, but I'll be damned if I never get to have another Hostess Twinkie for posterity."

After work I went to three more grocery stores. All gone. I hit up two gas stations. Nothing. I did get a pack of Ho-Hos and decided to have one for the hell of it. I ended up spitting it out. It's gross. Still want twinkie :<

It wasn't until I took a law class that I realized how dumb some of our laws really are.
