Forgotten in the analysis of who's up and who's down after the Supreme Court upheld Obamacare, some investors will face a new 3.8% surtax on long-term capital gains and dividends starting Jan. 1, 2013; their tax rates will jump from 15% to 18.8% - much higher if the Bush tax cuts expire. Muni bonds and Roth IRAs could see a surge in activity by year's end.

    19 big taxes coming from N S E & W.... This should be seen as a giant GHWB moment.. " Read my lips ! No new taxes "


    This tax in on one page.There are 2699 full of goodies.. And strike me with a stick,but, the lipstick wearing pig loving former Gov. touted a bunch of bureaucrats will form a panel .. A death panel ... Yes boys/girls !


    Do not get old... At 70 you will just be made comfortable unless you can pay ! Come to LA an pay 20 cents on dollar for great care. We got Johns Hopkings too ! DL

    The Obama administration is doing everything it can to refute the "new tax" finding by the SCOTUS. There is no better reason to vote this POS out of office. I voted for Obama in '08, but the changes he promised are not the changes we have seen. If he gets another term, who knows. What did he tell Dmitry Medvedev when he thought no one could here? He will have more latitude once he's re-elected. Do you want 4 more years of this government stalemate and poor economy?

    Can't agree more. I guess 2008 win was more of a sympathy win than anything else. Ruining our country in every way. First making illegals legal. And then driving highly educated people, investors out. I would like more of phd, masters who start companies here than food-stamp people.


    Legalize non-tax paying people and kick out skilled people who pay lot more tax. United states of food-stamps in progress. Few pay all tax and rest free ride. Un-competitive nation in forming under current administration.
