    Yes, I do, that's why I've not heard anyone propose a 40% capital gains tax rate. I think you just pulled that out of your ass, which is why you cannot back it up with a credible source.

    one of your fellow travelers on this board said that all income should be taxed at 40% for the rich. so you are lying unless you want to call the guy who likes your posts the most a liar

    So no politician has proposed a 40% tax rate on Capital gains? You are frantic just because a forum poster suggested it?

    you deny that some people want capital gains and dividend income to be taxed the same for the rich as earned income?

    WTF do you think the BUFFETT RULE is designed to do?

    I think they do. I think we unfairly dish out too much money to the poor/lazy.

    There are no proposals by Congress or the President I have seen that increase capital gains tax rates to 40%. If there were, you would have provided a source to show us that you didn't just pull that out of your ass. But you haven't, so we know where that figure came from.

    Increase capital gain rates to the same as earned income, just as Reagan thought it should be.

    Its amazing you contradict yourself so easily

    you want the rich to pay 40% marginal rates

    you want dividend income to be taxed the same as their earned income

    QED you want taxes on dividends to be 40%

    Oh, that explains why the poor/lazy are so well off and the rich are doing so poorly.

    Do you really expect anyone but the far right to buy that Digsbe?

    you apparently don't understand things too well. we have given billions to the poor in order for the government to gain power and control and all this has done is to expand dependency

    and far more people than the far right (anyone who thinks others pay too much taxes apparently is far right to the moon bat left) are tired of so much money being confiscated to buy the votes of the needy
