    To overturn this is going to require GOP majorities in the Senate and House and for Romney to win the presidency. It could happen, but I wouldn't want to be the GOP when they are trying to repeal this when it is fully implemented. They have a two year window and that means this November is their only shot. They are going to give it everything they have.

    Listen to your own rhetoric.
    You have no idea who's paying that surcharge, do ya?


    The new increases in Medicare taxes will apply to individuals making more than $200,000 a year, or $250,000 for married couples.

    That works for me.

    Perhaps he should stop trying then?

    The country really is going to hell this time, honest. It's not like the 10000000000000 other times people cried wolf over something like this.

    So you are saying the SCOTUS ruling added taxes? Funny, I was unaware of that. The article did mention the penalty and the amount.
    penalty? what penalty?... oh , you mean the tax that Obama said is not a tax

    I hope to God they can do it.
    I hadn't really committed to voting for anyone with an R behind their name this year, but today confirms that I will.

    Who cares what it's called? The Supreme Court calls it a tax for legal reasons, Obama calls it a penalty for political salesmanship reasons. It really doesn't matter what you call it, it's now the law of the land with the Supreme Court's stamp of approval. Eat it.
