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.
No, you don't understand. You are talking about tax rates. I'm talking about people who live off of capital gains and dividends getting hurt because the government is taking more of their money. Which is why they are returning to work and not taking the gains and let the dividends reinvest till the rates come back down or eliminated altogether. Get it now?

So, the courts voted in favor of requiring banks to issue bad loans.

Bad home loans are of two kinds. The first is where the borrower lacks the financial resources to repay the loan. The second is where the property is worth less than the loan and/or is likely to decline in value, such as in depressed neighborhoods.

Once again, politics trumps sanity.

Most people do not have a choice. Defined benefit pension plans are largely history outside of government. And virtually all government pension plans are hugely underfunded.

"Our Ridiculous Approach to Retirement"

"Seventy-five percent of Americans nearing retirement age in 2010 had less than $30,000 in their retirement accounts."

"Almost half of middle-class workers, 49 percent, will be poor or near poor in retirement, living on a food budget of about $5 a day"

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/22/opinion/sun...

You are such a dipschit...I want you to tell me why tens of millions of people can't figure out how to invest and retire with more than 30K?

Are they dumb, is it discrimination, or just bad luck?
