During his State of the Union Address, President Obama focused on a Portland businessman: Jim Hauser, a small businessman, who discovered he has to pay an additional $5000 a year for his employees’ healthcare. . Houser owns Hawthorne Auto and says, even though he's a small business owner, health care is a priority for his employees. Houser says it's been difficult, because costs have skyrocketed over the last 10 years. He says small business tax credits in the new health care law will save him more than $10,000.
