    in the form of an additional 0.9% Medicare tax on people with incomes over, I think, the $400,000/$450,000 level. I'm not sure if it's on earned income or all income.

    In any event, it is additional revenue to help Medicare solvency.

    I suspect we may see higher premiums for upper-income Medicare participants -- they're already a bit higher but will likely go up.
