Library of Congress Summary

The summary below was written by the Congressional Research Service, which is a nonpartisan division of the Library of Congress.

Amends the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 to repeal the unearned income Medicare contribution provision, under which:
(1) net investment income (interest, dividends, annuities, royalties, rents, passive income, and net gain from the disposition of nonbusiness property) is included in the Medicare taxable base;
(2) a 3.8% tax is imposed on it, beginning in 2013; and
(3) the net investment income of taxpayers with adjusted gross incomes of under $200,000 ($250,000 for joint returns) is excluded from such tax.

House Republican Conference Summary

The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.

No summary available.

House Democratic Caucus Summary

The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.

So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.

We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
