Amidst another social media firestorm (and boycott movement) surrounding Papa John's CEO John Schnatter's controversial comments about Obamacare, another large pizza chain has not-so-subtly announced its own (seemingly opposing) views on the healthcare law.

This afternoon, Papa Murphy's Pizza, the 5th largest pizza chain in the U.S., posted the following statement on its Facebook page:

And now an important word from this Papa... Papa Murphy's Pizza provides a fun, dynamic and rewarding place to work because we value our employees and their basic needs, including the need for affordable healthcare. Papa Murphy's abides by state and federal laws and will remain in compliance with healthcare reform. Together with our 550+ franchise owners across the country, we are working to implement any necessary changes while staying true to our goal: To provide a superior experience and product every day to every guest.

    no more papa johns although i liked it. Don't like the politics. Last pizza was a week or two ago.

    Never did like Papa John's, although my son does, and he collected enough 'Papa Points' last summer to get a free pizza every month. No more - he's decided he's going to switch to Papa Murphy's, and stop risking burnt, cold, or otherwise inedible pizza, which he received several times through PJ delivery. Papa's got a big fat problem....and it isn't Obamacare.
