whyb the wealthy want to elminate capital 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 wants 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?

1. They don't have earned income. All they have is cap gains. So of course they want that taxed at 0% s

they, the tapeworms of society, pay no taxes at all.

2. Oh, oh, oh, I know the answer!

It is because no one will invest if they have to pay taxes on the money they earn.

At least that I what I have heard. I wonder how this country's stock market and business has survived all these years. But we are too stupid to put that 1 + 1 together.
