The republican platform this year has a VAT tax in it.
This will increase prices to do business. As I will be paying a extra 10% on materials. This will be passed on to consumers giving them even less income.

The only thing that effects my business is homeowners having less disposable income. Until someone does something to correct runaway inflation they wont. Even so my business is 70% commercial so I will still be here if things take a turn for the worst. I already have $60k in contracts for 2013.

A homeowner will pay their mortgage, grocery or utility bill before paying for their lawn work. The simple fact is we're the first to get cut in the budget.

my business is 100% commercial and i have 500 k in contracts for 2013 and if you think they will not be making cuts in spending if things get worse then you are in fantasy land because they are already doing so.

even in a corporate setting there will not be much need to cut the grass if they go out of business or move overseas and these homeowners you speak of need jobs that these greedy corporations provide and they have the money and the power to make it all go away if they don't like it.

as the old saying goes, " don't bite the hand that feeds you ".
