    Capital gains are a whole different monster. They are even taxed at a different rate.
    what is the purpose of such a silly post?

    ooz envy? with something you posted?Surely you jest.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    No,no envy. I am just sick of people throwing out that taxed twice bull**** as a blanket statement. I know how dividends are taxed, I am not stupid, td.

    Then maybe YOU can help me. Just so I understand, a company generates revenue from a change in ‘owners’ of money. If I own stock in a company and they make a profit isn’t some miniscule portion of that profit mine? The company pays tax on that profit (including my miniscule part). They then MAY distribute any remaining in dividend (which represents my miniscule part of the original PRETAX profit) to me which I pay tax on. How is the ORIGINAL transfer of money not taxed twice?

    so why did you think I was talking about capital gains. the 35% taxation obviously meant corporate profits=dividends

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Sorry but I don't buy that line about higher taxes reducing investment either. People play the stock market to make money and that won't change with higher taxes. Bsdes the taxes are not on "risk" they are only paid on PROFITS.

    so that is how you justify the government taking more from those who have paid far more than their share?
