10. Like I said,

"Later in the day, we are betrayed by the passage of ATRA. Which some say increase the tax rate on capital gains to 20%, but they lie because that increase happened automatically with the expiration of the Bush tax cuts. "

...your analysis is bullshit. In fact, it's bullshit on top of bullshit.

"Here's another easy example. Krugma himself probably saves $6,000 a year in taxes because of ATRA. Not exactly an earth shattering sum, but he saves it every year until he retires, and considering that the car I drive was purchased for $3,500 I don't think that Krugman can actually relate to somebody like me."
