The 1% get most of their income from capital gains; the rest of us from hard work. Yet, capital gains have a much lower tax rate despite the reality that they are the dominant form of personal income for the wealthy elites. In a nation still mired in economic crisis, it makes sense to tax capital gains at the same rate as personal income from real work. It's a shot in the arm that the American economy desperately needs.

Signed & Noted.

BTW - The theory behind why capital gains taxes are lower than wage taxes is: Wait for it...... To inspire investment in industry to create jobs and grow the economy.!!!!
WORKS REAL GOOD, HUH ? Tell that to the pundits and analysts who spout this crap and laughingly say how the masses DON'T understand economics. Get the Richer than is decent off their collective arrses [well, I wish
but they will still be Rich enough to not work], and tax them like the wage earners.

Those cuts have added way too much to the deficit already and have been extended way too long.
