7. they get those cuts & i believe they also get to keep the bush-era lower taxation of dividend

 

income as well -- at every level of income.

also wish to point out that continuing to tax capital income at lower rates than labor income is not only unfair, it also has a political value, in that it tends to bias the upper-middle class toward policies that favor capital. and this section of the electorate is key in most political contests.
