    Capital gains rates should go back up towards where they were under Reagan (R). Don't most all conservatives say we lived in an economic wonderland back then?

    Personal capital gains should be taxed just like wages or any other taxable income.

    We need a pure flat rate personal income tax on all income with no deductions.

    I love it when one of the worlds three riches citizens wants to raise taxes on the rest of the US, what a joke...

    The problem with this bull shit is it wants to claim "X" but it clearly taxes "Z"...

    $250K is far from rich in todays world, wake up dipshit...

    He's got all his assets in a tax free trust and tried to buy $3B of tax credits at a discount. Who the fuck would take him seriously on taxes?

    If you doubled the taxes on billionaires you'd pay Obama deficit for maybe a month

    why tax capital at all when capital is the lifeblood needed to grow an economy. If you tax venture capital you have less capital and fewer new ventures like Google and Intel.

    Letting government tax away venture capital is purely idiotic and liberal. Venture capitalists say the more capital they have the more "shots on goal" they can take.

    Is this really over a liberals head?

    Imagine being so disoriented and confused you are more worried about getting money to liberal bureaucrats than venture capitalists?
    This is the cancer of liberalism.
