And it again is incredible that you see fit to speak for those others who may pay more than both you and Romney.
You and some others here miss the point and it seems you are into a forest and trees situation. The fact is a simple one and an obvious one: wages and salary fo the higher earners are taxed at far higher rates than are long term capital gains. Many who inherit up to five million dollars pay ZERO on it. And we have not even got into the intricate details of Machiavellian schemes like off shore accounts which some like Romney use to reduce their tax burden even further.
The defenders and supporters of the wealthy scream bloody murder when these sort of things get publicity. They do NOT want the average American to be tipped off to how the game is rigged in favor of the wealthy. That is more than evident in threads just like this where some try to make it about CBO statements and not about discriminatory tax rates.
When the rich investor or inheritor pays as much as the million dollar salary earner, then we will have a proper arrangement.
