why the rich try to kill captial gains tax

whats wrong with elminating the capital gains tax=Romney paid 14% on his taxes in capital gains tax=nothing in income tax! he made 13,696,951; a few years ago he would have paid 3,835,146;a few yrs before that 5 million -the right want to elminate the capital gains tax-that means you the worker have to pick up the void! think about that!!! think hard!! because they have shifted the tax burden by 40% to you in the last 10 years!
vote your pocket book=it ain't "alec" or the heritage foundation picking up the slack! its you and me while the big boys skate!
my off shore account is "0" WHATS YOURS?

2. here's why

because soon people like you will realize that Romney and others like him who are wealthy pay more in capital gains than income tax. therefore the more the capital gains tax is lowered the less they contribute! becoming a free loader on our society!
the tax burden has shifted to benefit the top 10% greatly and many are investing this windfall in off shore accounts and businesses!
