they cannot argue why the rates on LTCG are wrong OTHER THAN WHINING about the rich
its all about envy-it has nothing to do with sound economics or even the "Good of society"
its about envy and spite
where you claimed Romney was talking about all of his taxes being 15%?
Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney revealed Tuesday that he pays about a 15% income tax rate
What are you talking about its not the issue? He paid 15% in progressive taxes. He almost certainly paid less than 1% is regressive. So his total tax burden is between 15% and 16%... Did you think that changed something? lol.
Makes perfect sense to me. Maybe if I use different words.... You seem to be saying that Romney is already paying too much in taxes, because he doesn't get back from government what he pays in. Then you said that you have no idea how much benefit he got from the $800 billion TARP program (for example). Thus your main premise is based on pure speculation (and you won't even speculate).Wow, that is ponderous. Completely illogical and devoid of merit, but ... ponderous!If I was to speculate I would say that Romney got tens of millions of dollars in value from TARP, insofar as his money is tied up in investments which would have lost a substantial percentage of their value if the government had not propped up the banks, and thus the markets. It may be that he got more value from that one action than he will EVER pay in.
Romney was very rich long before TARP
and here-you claim this makes sense?
and d then you say you don't what he gets back ... that's not all that convincing.
nor is she paying a higher overall federal income tax level unless she is making over 200K a year
maybe she is but the fact remains if she invests she will pay less on that income than on salary and if she sells that business she will pay less as well than her earned income
btw your claim Adam T that no one wants to raise her tax rate is in error
