NO tax increase on the wealthy that have assets.
Nothing changes as those folks donate to both parties.
Taxes went up on income producers ONLY.
Capital gains taxes went up 33%.
Guess what happens now?
WE HOLD LONG, do no more investing there as the gains are 33% LOWER so why invest in the economy here in America with high taxes?
Dumb asses. Going short in Brazil and Chile with retail and farming with 100% of my investment dollars this year.

The gains aren't 33% lower you mathematical midget. The top rate increased from 15% to 23.8% - that's an 8.8% reduction in after tax gains, not 33%. My lord **** you are stupid. I sure as hell hope you are joking about doing your own investing.
Capital gains went from 15% to 20%, that's a 33% increase.

Taxes did not kick in for the 47%.

Or maybe they did on some of them and now it is the 37%?
Taxes will increase on everyone since the payroll tax holiday is now over. Oh, but wait, I forgot; payroll taxes are not taxes because 47% of Americans pay no taxes, lmao!!! The 47% doesn't pay taxes, but now that payroll taxes are being increased back to their standard rate, Obama is now giving the 47% who don't pay taxes a tax increase.
Hilarious, right?

I'm embarrassed that I was ever a registered member of the Clown Shoes party.

Under your theory it would be almost a 40% increase in taxes on gains!
No, dumb ass, the rate went from 15-20%.
5% is 33% of 15% you moron. 5 is 1/3 of 15 you fool.
It went up 5% from 15% to 20%. That 5% increase represents 33% of the 15% it was before the increase.
It went up 33%.
You are dumb as a box of rocks. Keep the "do you want fries with that" job.
It fits you.

The tax rate went up 33% but your after tax gains do not go DOWN 33% as a result, as you have claimed. After tax gains only decreases by 5.8%. See above post Thanks to Obama MY PAYCHECK IS LESS!!! and do yourself a favor and refrain from doing your own investing.

Dumb ass, there is no guarantee of a gain or reduction in a capital gain.
Do you even know what capital gains come from?

We are talking TAX INCREASES.
The tax increase is 33% on the gain.

NOT the gain you fool, THE TAX INCREASE.
And we are limited now to a whopping 3K a year in carryover losses individually.
You DO KNOW that many capital investments LOSE MONEY!

"INCREASE ON TAXES"
is what I clearly stated.
You have your Obama talking points down very well though.

You're an idiot. Profits from short positions are subject to the ordinary income tax rate, whether they are in the U.S., Brazil, or Alpha Centari. You'll be paying a higher tax rate on those transactions than your would pay on positions subject to the long term rates.

LOL! So the increase in the long term capital gains rate is motivating you to choose one tax free transaction over another tax-free transaction - that makes a lot of sense.

Try making a point. Nothing of what you've said makes any sense so far, and you even deny saying things that you've said.

The gains aren't 33% lower you mathematical midget. The top rate increased from 15% to 23.8% - that's an 8.8% reduction in after tax gains, not 33%. My lord **** you are stupid. I sure as hell hope you are joking about doing your own investing.
Capital gains went from 15% to 20%, that's a 33% increase.
That's not the same as saying there is a 33% reduction in gains.

AFTER the tax hike

Difference in gains = $850 - $800 = $50

$50 is 5.8% of $850 - NOT 33%.
No, you dont have to do the math for me, I'm aware they are two different equations measuring two different things. This **** is my bread and butter.

Dumb ass, there is no guarantee of a gain or reduction in a capital gain.
Do you even know what capital gains come from?

We are talking TAX INCREASES.
The tax increase is 33% on the gain.

NOT the gain you fool, THE TAX INCREASE.
And we are limited now to a whopping 3K a year in carryover losses individually.
You DO KNOW that many capital investments LOSE MONEY!
I believe that's what he was pointing out. You are essentially agreeing with him.

And, as to your last question, a capital investment loss is a tax write-off. A write off which, mind you, you can carry over into years where you see a gain.
