[quote]A cut is the flipside of an increase...if an increase cuts investment then a decrease would arguably increase investment... [/quote] Then why not simply stick to talking about an increase? Why this need to suddenly start talking about a flipside? While we're at it, I would like you to pr...

[quote]First of all there is no indication that investment will increase with a capital gains tax cut[/quote] Who said anything about a cut? You're talking about an increase. If you want to talk about a cut, we can discuss that later. [quote]Is investment good for the economy? Which economy?...

[quote] labor will soon come to understand that what is good for capital is most often detrimental to labor..[/quote] You are spouting nonsense. Labor is incintivized by self interest. Capital is the manifestation of the fruits of labor and the means by which our self interest is fulfilled. T...

[quote]But the standard argument is they are paying more...it can't possible be both. [/quote] unless you are, again, conflating two different things. They pay MORE, as expressed as a whole number ($XXX,XXX,XXX,XXX) They pay LESS, as expressed as a percentage, and again this comes with a ...

[quote]but it ain't the government who is manipulating it[/quote] :lol: who the frick do you think writes the tax code? I don't give two shits where their motivation comes from, be it wealthy investors or pandering to poor voters. The government writes and enforces the tax code, so take it up ...

[quote]germandawg[/quote] I was going to ask what your solution was, but that would involve at least humoring your absurd position that this is a problem in the first place. You're making no point at all aside from pushing socioeconomic envy. Stop being an a-hole....
