Small Business Health Care Costs: How might the Supreme Court's upcoming decision on health care affect business? Last year, Seattle's Cupcake Royale paid more than $67,000 toward health care, covering 75 percent of health care costs for eligible employees. Between 2004 and 2010, owner Jody Hall says rate increases often exceeded 20 percent. She believes it's critical that the Supreme Court uphold President Obama's Affordable Care Act to help her get costs under control.
