5. Me too, I disagree. Maybe dividends for the big players, like Romney, should be taxed at 40%

 

but for small time people with low incomes, like retirees, the current rate is imminently fair. There is nowhere to earn interest on small amounts of money so people are forced into high risk stock market investments to try and keep up with inflation. It's just another example of bank fraud, they charge over 20% on their credit cards but barley pay .25% (1/4 of one percent) on savings accounts. The President should think about this more.
