    • Even if lawmakers somehow stop the Bush-era tax rates from expiring, taxes are still expected to rise on Jan. 1 -- thanks to a trio of new fees tied to the federal health care overhaul.

      The IRS this past week published rules for some of the first major taxes meant to help pay for President Obama’s massive insurance coverage expansion. Together, they will raise investment and income taxes on top earners and impose a separate -- and controversial -- tax on medical devices.

      The bundle of fees has been largely overlooked as lawmakers and the White House bicker over the Bush tax rates, with Republicans demanding they be extended for everyone and Obama insisting rates rise for top earners. But that same group of earners is already in the crosshairs under the ObamaCare tax rules published this week.

      Starting Jan. 1, investment income for individuals earning over $200,000 and households earning over $250,000 will be subject to a new 3.8 percent tax. Further, regular income above those thresholds will be hit with a .9 percent Medicare surtax. Should the Bush tax rates expire for those workers, those increases will be compounded.

    • U mean like this.....

    • Of course it won't be 39%. Rich congressmen (BOTH dems and GOP) are NOT going to raise THEIR OWN TAXES. We already know that. The devil is in the details of SPENDING, not taxing.

    • I wish it were possible but not with this President. He feels invinceable. He can say anything, not compromise and get the media to make him look like he is doing the will of the people. The people(51% will follow him anywhere)
