Anything - Except How You Are Gonna Make Our Lives Better Right Donald?

Pure sideshow, zero substance.

And like no one has figured out the scam.

Here's how you fix America. Collect taxes from the folks who have benefited from our rigged system of not taxing unrealized capital gains, and use the money to fix our energy systems, and infrastructure. This would employ everyone that wants to work, and move our fossil fuel based extinction economy into something that doesn't make 500 species go extinct every day.

The Only Answer.

Anything but this answer (the wall) is pure bs.

1. I disagree.

Taxing unrealized gains on investments hurts the little guy too much. Most of us have some investments here and there, that doesn't make you rich. And you don't see the money until you cash it in. You would be forcing people to cash in their investments to pay their taxes. But they lose their investment to pay the taxes.

4. So, you exempt up to $1 million or so...

or set a cap somewhere, they do that on a lot of tax law. But don't allow 10's or 100's of million in exemption from taxation.
