Also, if you raise taxes on CG to 30% you will see the stock market implode as hedge funds run for the hills for more tax efficient investments...and you will see everyday citizens 401k and pensions take a HUGE hit...
Try to "soak the rich" you end up fcuking everyday people...
Also, when CG was cut to 15%....the tax revenue increased....care to hazzard a guess why???
EXACTLY!! Lets also not forget how the tax system breaks down, Something like 47% of Americans pay 0% effective in taxes... Wait a minute i guess that guy was right, maybe we do have an income problem
