    It is only on the owner. You already pay it on employees. Only the employee portion is going back up to it's original rate.

    Under 50 employees and you dont pay for healthcare.
    As for going back to the original rate, garbage. I know, its only 2%, then next it will be 2.25%.
    Back to the question, yes. I have raised rates and will set a higher price for everything overall this season. Funny thing is I have a few hardcore Libs that only want to pay me in cash and then tell me that way I dont half to claim it and pay taxes on it!

    The government said there is no way that the costs of higher taxes would be passed onto the consumer..... The government said it, it must be true!
