it's absurd that Mitt Romney's taxes are capped at 15% while a WORKER is capped at 35%.


No discount for risking complete loss of principal? The worker doesn't risk any funds. An investor does. two very different activities. And the vast majority of investors are middle class. You really think raising the cap gains rate will hurt Mitt Romney?

The discount is that he can net his losses against his gains.

see my discussion on taxing capital gains at ordinary income tax rates

Looked back a few pages in your hx, but didn't see anything. Link? Sounds like an awful idea to me...

What happens if he only has losses? offset against income tax? Since you say they are the same????

Hey Rex,

How about a Flat Tax and a National sales tax so even the parasites have to pay their 'fair share'

I'd allow carryovers.

How about a deduction against income tax?

Flat tax: definitely AGAINST. It's a stupid proposition because it does next to nothing in solving the problem of our bloated tax code. Measuring income is what's complicated, not applying a tax rate.

National sales tax: FOR if all exchanges of value, including sales of real estate and equities, are taxed.

Not badgering, just not sure if you saw the question. How much would you expect the cap gains change to raise in revenue?

So you have no idea how much revenue your proposal would bring in. Why, then, do you propose it? Just because you don't linke Mitt? Isn't the goal to increase revenue. Not for you, I guess.

Well that means the 53% should be able to tell those living off thier taxes to take a F'ing pay cut NOW Fool, or get a damaned job. When 64,000 is availble to a family of THREE(that is one mommy and two daddy babies to fools or rather the King of them).

We don't get to vote on income tax. It's not determined democratically.

Ha see all you needed to see from Rexy was that it wouldn't impact him, facts are no factor in his thinking. No idea how much it will "generate" nor it's effect on others but because it looks like it will frick someone else....well then he is all in baby.

Because I'm certain it would be both fairer and substantial. I don't have to know how many people would be executed to support capital punishment, either.
