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.)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
