    Besides the rest of the ridiculous, cold-hearted party platform, I found this little bit quite funny:

    So, you're not in favor of eliminating taxes for lower and middle income earner. Got it.

    That's not fair. If poor people don't have to pay capital gains taxes then no one should!

    Quick question..................how many lower and middle income taxpayers can afford the income required to generate capital gains?

    That's just an opening for them to get rid of the capital gains for the uber rich.

    Geez, next thing you know, they will be campaigning to end the Death Tax (aka Estate Taxes) on the lower and middle class.

    Hoorah for the GOP!

    Well, there's anyone who owns a home for starters. You sell it for more than you paid... capital gain. You have a mutual fund and you sell a security in said fund for more than you paid... capital gain.

    Here's a piece explaining how capital gains tax cuts benefit middle class in Wisconsin, and just how many it can benefit.

    You have to realize that when talking to the Romney rich, lower and middle income earners are probably folks pulling in 250K +. Folks earning less than 6 figures don't mean shit to Republicans and don't figure into their policies, except how to better exploit them.
