re: Rubio’s Call for No Capital Gains Tax Is a Significant Break With the G.O.P. - GRTiger
I think she is looking at it as a choice being made between lowering income taxes across all brackets or lowering the capital gains tax, which in fact would benefit higher earners in practice, despite it being a cut for anyone in theory. In other words, if a bully is looking at his two nerds, th...

re: Rubio’s Call for No Capital Gains Tax Is a Significant Break With the G.O.P. - GRTiger
Capital gains are not elite. :lol: There is definitely a legit reason to have a lower rate there than with normal income, not the least of which being that for many, the initial investment was already taxed. The way you are posing your argument leads me to infer that any rate below normal inc...

What do yall think would happen to the incentive to retain investments over the long term with a zero tax? Honest question. I think a zero rate would have some unintended negative consequences with that. ...

re: Do "breaks" work? - GRTiger
I can't see how they don't work, at least for one person. No matter the outcome, the break caused that, which means it's ultimately for the best, so it worked. ...

[quote]The goal is to get the wealthy corporations and business men to let go of more money, putting it in circulation for the rest of us to see. [/quote] I agree. Changing the game on the loss side is a great way to do that. Right now, I can only reduce my taxable income by what $3,000 if I ha...

The cutoff of essential and nonessential could be managed, but this would require tax evaders to put some skin in the game. Sell drugs if you want, but that ps4 purchase is still going to increase the purse. It's also admittedly a good way to modify poor spending habits of lower income folks, withou...

[quote]It's the vindictive attitude just for the sake of it that's so disturbing. I would understand their view if it actually impacted them.[/quote] If the reduction in capital gains tax is in lieu of a reduction in ordinary income tax, how does it not affect a lot of people? I'd be for a r...

re: VM audio surfaces of Cruz camp, re: Crason/CNN controversy. - GRTiger
Well it showed he was insane, which was a unique turnoff. Cruz took the opportunity presented by poor campaign management on the part of Carson and poor reporting by CNN to try and get votes. If it's slimy to try and get votes, then what the hell are we even talking about? ...

[quote]This could be Cruz's "Dean Moment" that kills his campaign. [/quote] Only because people want it to be. What the other candidates are doing to him is much worse than what he did in Iowa. And I don't even care. This is politics. But don't pretend this narrative is something being push...

[quote]Yes, sabotaging a candidate in the Iowa caucus - then lying about it - then apologizing for it is no biggie. Complete media over-reaction. [/quote] I gotta say, with how you spin the Hilary felonies, I feel pretty good about being on the other side of this from you. ...
