There are few middle class Americans who are effected by capital gains taxes. The vast majority is by those making over $250K.
The tax cut on capital gains heavily favored the wealthy.
Anybody who owns shares in a mutual fund outside of a retirement plan pays capital gains taxes every year.

The fact that you have no investments means little.

Less government.
Less government micromanaging, controlling, interfering and taking more of people's money to waste on all of the above.
That's the solution.

You predicted the fall of Assad within 24 hours at least six months ago. As long as Assad has the backing of Russia and Iran, he will survive.
Still closer/more accurate than anything you, Flack or any other rightwinger has predicted.

Since when is it our business to interfere in the internal politics of another country.
Besides, it was obvious that the Muslim Brotherhood would win in Egypt, so Obama made a token play for democracy.
By the way, democracy is already dead in Egypt, before it ever had a chance. Remember that Hitler also won an election.
Tea Party stuff like this helped elected President Obama

If you say "high risk" equals "black", then you are the racist.
"High risk" means high probability of default.
Like the loss of the 2012 election is de'fault of the Tea Party.
Keep posting.

Tea Party wing Republican Party pushed out moderate Sen. Richard Lugar in Indiana and then ran Tea Party candidate Richard Mourdock, who lost to the Democrat in a state Romney won. Tea Party candidate Todd Akins, of Missouri, imploded which bled into the race in North Dakota, giving Democrat Heidi Hietkamp a close win in a Republican state.

Romney ran this race with an anchor tied to his leg. That anchor is the Tea Party. They are the Democratsí best weapon. If you donít believe that, just look at the Senate races.

The Tea Party are amateurs who have made good choices like Rand Paul, Mike Lee, and Ted Cruz, but have also made bad choices. The problem is not with the movement, but with the mechanics.

Patrick, you're boring everybody to death by repeating the same post.

Who owns stock outside a retirement account? Very few of those making under 250K.

The vast majority of capital gains taxes are paid by those making over 250K a year.

You are joking in your first sentence, right?

The US has dabbled in other country's governments for decades.

You claimed Obama put the Muslim Brotherhood in power. That was a liar. You can avoid that subject all you want but you said it & it was a lie.
