Then why cry about it?<quoted text> You are seriously clueless. There are a lot of middle class people who live off capital gains and dividends.i know several people who buy stocks in the spring and fall when the price is low and sell in the winter and fall when the price is high. T is capital gains twice a year. They will pay double on that cutting the liveable earnings in half. All of them receive dividends too. That too will be taxed at a higher rate. again cutting their liveable income. Because you don't do it doesn't mean a lot others don't. A few have told me they are going back to their old line of work and just let it ride till this shitstorm is over. So you won't get any new revenue from them. In fact you will lose some.
If everyone will avoid it.
400 people alone worth $1.7 Trillion.
Total citizen wealth:$47 Trillion.
Top 10% own 90% of that.
That is not a healthy economy. Income splits out like that too. When are these few rich at the top going to spend enough to drive demand in the economy?
USA richest country on earth: why does the economy crawl?
Rich people already had everything they needed BEFORE Bush tax cuts windfall. No new demand. Just selfish greedy hoarding.
Obama the genius is changing this fffffed up situation to stimulate demand and pay down debt. Tell a rich guy: pay up crynaby! The USA NEEDS YOU! HELP YOUR COUNTRY!! DEADBEATS!!
