    The IRS has published the rules about the taxes.  Investment income for households earning more than $250,000 a year will be subject to a 3.8% tax.  Regular income for those households will also face a nearly 1% Medicare surtax.

    There is also a 2.3% tax on medical devices.  Georgia Republican Congressman Tom Price fears that that tax will reduce medical research.
