Someone who claims to be a Republican wrote this today. The "you people" he is referring to are professional investors, i.e. Wall Street. (Or perhaps he was referring to Canadians. If so, I'll alert Ottawa.) Now, this surprised me a bit. I always thought Republicans were very friendly towards professional investors by lowering capital gains, opposing Dodd-Frank and other regulations, opposing tax increases on carried interest for hedge fund managers, etc. And Democrats, though not particularly buddy-buddy with Wall Street, haven't exactly been storming the barriers to lynch the titans of high finance either. Is he right? Help me clarify this pressing issue!
