      That 3.8% went into effect for 2013 and so had zero effect on the retrospective charts in the post

      And a good part of the reason why the Right is squealing about Obamacare. They could give a shit about the mandate which won't effect the top 1% one way or the other (all being covered one way or another), that is just a blind for their not wanting to pay that new 3.8% Medicare charge.
