Sweet fuckity fuck. So just to refresh everyone, under the financially prudent Bush tax cuts the capital gains tax was lowered to 15% percent. What does this mean? It means anyone who primarily derives their income from wages (and that includes a lot of people making 6 figures too) pays a least double the tax rate of the richest Americans who primarily derive their income from stock, hedge funds, and the like.
Apparently not satisfied with this royal fucking of average American taxpayers, the moron wing of the GOP is now trying to lower the capital gains tax further as a part the bail-out package. According to these blatant thieves, lowering the capital gains tax will somehow encourage more investment in the shaken markets. Because, you know, people wouldn’t invest their money otherwise.:rolleyes: I mean, seriously, do these jackasses think the American public is this stupid? Or is it just that these ass fucks are so besotted by uber-capitalism and dumb ass libertarian ideals that they are in effect trying to exacerbate unbridled greed, which is what got us into this mess in the first place. Honestly, I almost pissed myself when I head this plan. What a stupid fucking moronic idea and proof of how little the GOP cares for anyone but their corporate paymasters and ignorant fucking religious zealots.
