    Selling over fiscal cliff concerns "makes no sense" with MLPs

    The 3.8% Medicare tax will affect traders, more so than investors, since it's a transaction-based tax. If one buys and holds ETP primarily for the income (and, hopefully, some appreciation), it won't be an issue as long as one's adjusted cost basis is $0 or above.
