Is David Gregory on the Koch brothers' payroll?

Gregory: I don't understand how the exchanges are going to work. I don't understand all the ins and outs of the employer mandate, and how that works but anybody who gets a paycheck in this country understands one thing. There's a new line item, and it says "Medicare surtax." So the tax parts working. You're paying more in taxes.
Um. No. Add this to the loooooong list of things David Gregory doesn't understand. Only people making more than $200,000/year will be paying a new Medicare surtax. Now, maybe in Dancin' Dave's world that's everybody, but outside the Village it's almost no one, less than five percent of the population.

(P.S. to Eugene Robinson: You really should have known that.)
