    You can't cut taxes for people that don't pay taxes. It's totally impossible.

    I have only one question - What's wrong with the CEO of a major corporation paying at least the same rate that his secretary pays?

    no, it hasn't. cap gains taxes are paid on the profit from investments, WHICH HAS NOT BEEN TAXED. jeez.

    What about losses? What is the Federal limit on losses? There would be no profit or loss if someone didn't take risk. Why should someone be penalized for taking risk?

    Does Buffet really pay a lower rate than his secretary? Or is that another version of truferism, like, "Bush was AWOL", or, "9/11 was an inside job"?

    How do you think those who aren't paying any FIT voted in the poll? So much misinformation out there about who pays what and at what rate. Why do you buy the lies of this Administration?

    If an investment goes belly-up, is that loss tax deductable?
