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.

In actuality the UN will vote to establish Palestine to "non member observer status".

If you say "high risk" equals "black", then you are the racist.
"High risk" means high probability of default.
The banks said it, not me.

The banks lost that argument in court.

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 keep repeating something that is clearly incorrect.

170 million rich people dave?
actually you missed my mistake...
around a 100 million folks file a tax return annually...
so that means 60 million people are counting on the stock market for some kind of return.....
About IRAs. So if all the non-ira type investors (me, included) pull their cash out of the SAME stock market that the laughable lovable IRA'ers are in it won't cause 'any problems'? Is that what you are saying RealDave?
You are a liar.

Over 80% of capital gains are from those with over $200k in taxable income.

Less than 13% of all tax returns show any capital gains income.

<quoted text> Actually they buy in the spring and sell in summer. Buy in the fall and sell in the winter. It's capital gains not income. Jeesh! No different than buying a house and selling it later for a profit. You are blinded by your ideology you can't see how you are going to hurt the very people you claim to want to help.
Evidently you are uninformed.

Captial Gains from investments held for less than a year are taxed as regular income.

Captial Income from investments held over a year is what is being discussed as far as returning to rates prior to the Bush tax cut or 20%.

Right now capital gains on investments held over a year are taxed at 15% if you are in the 25% bracket or more.

So, those people you are talking about are not affected by the long term capital gains taxes at all.
