Papa John doesn’t want you to have health care, lives in 40K square foot home, 22 car garage, underpays his employees
Mitt Romney said after visiting Schnatter’s home in Anchorage, Ken., for a fundraiser:
“Who would’ve imagined pizza could build this. This is really something. Don’t you love this country? What a home this is, what grounds these are, the pool, the golf course…. This is a real tribute to America, to entrepreneurship.”
This large and over the top mansion is owned by the founder and CEO of Papa John’s, John Schnatter. The house is 40,000 square feet and it resembles a castle. One interesting feature on this 16-acre estate is the 22-car underground garage, complete with an office for valet parking, a car wash and even a motorized turn table to move limousines. The home also has a state-of-the-art exercise suite and a huge 6,000 square foot carriage house. Unfortunately, there wasn’t any information on the inside of this interesting estate.

My entire apartment in Manhattan, is likely much, much smaller than this man’s closet.But, I’m sure he pays his employees well, amirite?Good ol’ John doesn’t pay his employees enough to rent my 2×2 closet, in my teeny tiny (but comfy!) apartment. A delivery driver makes a whopping $6.41 per hour.It’s wonderful that this man has been able to realize the American dream — some of it, on the backs of his workers, who are insufficiently paid. But, nevertheless, I applaud his success — but his partisan views made while living in his sprawling mansion, clearly are not in the interest of the middle class.John, people die without health care.
