Perhaps because there are a lot of people that develop capital gains as their sole source of income?

Best Answer

So what? Generally they have already been taxed on that money when it was earned as business profit or as a salary. Now they are using the same money to invest in businesses. The profit is taxed at the capitol gains rate of generally 15% And the capital gains tax is low to encourage investment. They are risking their capital. To help the economy. So does it make sense to discourage investment by doubling the tax on returns thereby cutting the incentive in half?

Best Answer

Oh, I get it. Trickle down economics.

Best Answer

Makes total sense. Investment went on when capital gains taxes were higher, and they'll go on if they go back up again. For the super rich they'll still make millions on millions.

Best Answer

Yeah, give the money to the super rich and hope they trickle on you. It isn't working, hasn't worked---but oddly the rich keep pushing it.

he can only get away with it until someone spotlights his mistake.

Best Answer

You mean deception. It's deceptive to compare the two as equal. He will kill investment incentives if he succeeds.

Best Answer

Or he'll get the Middle Class working again, and they'll have the funds to invest for their own and their children's future, and some people will have to learn to live on $50 million per year instead of $75 million.
